Levin Uniting Parish is a fellowship which includes both the congregations of St Johns Methodist Church and St Andrews Presbyterian Church Levin who have joined together as one body to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ and demonstrate the Love of God for all people. The members of this combined Christian fellowship affirm “Christ is our foundation who inspires us to be a worshipping welcoming, giving group of people, actively sharing the good news within our community and beyond.”
Levin Uniting Church was formed in February 2008, when St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church and St John’s Methodist joined forces and all worship activities were shifted to the St Andrew’s site, now known as Levin Uniting Church on Oxford. It’s the only church on Levin’s main street, and can comfortably fit 300 people.
In November 2015 Parish Council unanimously decided “THAT the Parish Council of Levin Uniting Church – acknowledges the dialogue with the Participating Partners during the last few months, – as a result of the dialogue supports the Methodist Church of NZ through its Lower North Island Synod, becoming the Coordinating Partner from November 2015 and requests the Parish Clerk to inform the national church partners and UCANZ accordingly.”
This Parish includes people in the area between Waikawa and Hokio to Waitarere Beach.
The Ministry of Levin Uniting Church is centrally based at 87 Oxford Street, Levin from where we care for and about people in both urban and rural areas throughout the wider Horowhenua District including Manakau, Ohau, Holkio, Muhunoa, Gladstone, Kawiu, Poroutawhao, Waitarere and Heatherlea.
