By the late 1960’s the size of our congregation had swelled in numbers and the need for a larger church was evident to all. The new church was completed and occupied in 1970. It was dedicated on November 1st, 1970 and consecrated on July 6th, 1975 by The Right Rev’d Eric Gowing, Bishop of Auckland.

Selwyn Church Howick is one of the earliest churches in Auckland. Established in 1847, it has been a focal point in a community which has seen many changes through the years. The old All Saints Selwyn church was prefabricated at St John’s College, Meadowbank, and hauled by bullock wagon from Howick Beach. The first service was held on the first Sunday after the first settlers arrived on November 21st, 1847. It is the icon of historic Howick, and continues to be lovingly maintained and frequently used for worship, weddings and funerals.

*The churches are not available for hire for weddings performed by Ministers/Pastors from other denominations or Celebrants.
