Welcome

Welcome, or Haera Mai, to the website of the Catholic Parish of the Good Shepherd, Hurunui, New Zealand.

We are part of the Diocese of Christchurch in New Zealand.

Our parish is made up of six church communities centred in six small towns of Amberley, Hawarden, Culverden, Hanmer Springs, Waiau and Cheviot. It was established in 2013 after the amalgamation of Hawarden, Hanmer Springs, and Cheviot parishes. Each of the six towns are Mass Centres.

The Presbytery and office is located in Amberley.

Parish Youtube Channel

Ever since Lockdown commenced, a Youtube channel has been set up for Our Parish. Every Sunday homily (during the time of Lockdown) is available, and there are also interesting general videos. It is part of new ways to reach out to parishioners. Click here for the link to the parish YouTube channel.
