St Aidans Presbyterian Church, Northcote, Auckland is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand, having its birth and infancy in 1888.
We honour and engage tradition through remembering in preaching, teaching and the sacraments; at the same time moving into an ever unfolding future, seeking to practice a Christian way of life; and wisdom through a life of knowing God through prayer and spirituality.
We are a people who are intentionally open and non – judgmental, an intellectual, generous and liberally inclusive community. We have no spiritual test to come in, no intellectual position to which one must agree, with our people holding a wide variety of views of social issues. We emphasise acceptance instead of doctrinal purity and diversity rather than uniformity.
We value the importance of asking questions and being open in community, for us this means, wisdom rather than certainty, questioning on the journey and upholding the idea that the Christian life will always be incomplete in this world.
