Who we are

The Church of the Cross, Turangi, Lake Taupo, a co-operating parish of Anglicans, Methodists and Presbyterians worshiping weekly, with a variety of traditional services.

The Co-operative Parish of Turangi is a small Parish with no resident minister but a strong Parish Council. Worship varies according to the traditions involved and weekly services can be from one of the three co-operating denominations. While the congregation tends to be older, with many people moving into the area to retire, there are often younger people and travellers worshiping with us. The church welcomes many local holiday home owners who attend regularly as well as an increasing number of tourists, particularly young people, who are walking the world famous Tongariro Crossing.

The power of Christian prayer Love me, Lord, just for today
Lord, for tomorrow and its needs, I do not pray; Keep me, my God, from stain of sin just for today. Let me both diligently work, And duly pray. Let me be kind in word and deed, Just for today. Let me be slow to do my will, Prompt to obey; Help me to sacrifice myself Just for today. And if today my tide of life should ebb away, Give me thy sacraments divine, Sweet Lord today. So for tomorrow and its needs I do not pray, But keep me, guide me, love me, Lord, Just for today.
