Welcome

Opoho Presbyterian Church is a friendly, multigenerational church, in the suburb of Opoho above the Botanic Gardens in Dunedin, New Zealand.

We welcome all people interested in living an abundant life in God, through following Jesus Christ.

We hold a variety of views and embrace and enjoy this diversity, always seeking answers and welcoming questions.

We meet on Sundays at 10 and at other times. Come and join us!

Our mission

The God we gather to worship calls us to share the good news Jesus Christ brought us and to help each other become part of what God is doing around us being actively involved in the life of our community and nurturing each other in a fellowship of accepting love.

A recent sermon

Readings: Ephesian 1:15-23. Luke 6:20-31.

I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love towards all the saints, and for this reason I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers. So writes Paul to the church in Ephesus as he begins a prayer of intercession for them. And he goes on to talk about how God gathers us in unity as church both in our time and also across time.  He assures us that the blessings that come in the name of Jesus gather us into one huge family we call church,  making us way more than NZ Presbyterians or Reformed Churches or 21st century churches. And that is a really good thing!

For one thing, it helps us keep our perspective, doesn’t it, helps remind us that we are not big fish in a small pond but part of a much greater fellowship transcending time and space...
