Te Pouhere Sunday

Sunday 25 May is Te Pouhere/Constitution Sunday when we celebrate the unique structure of the Anglican church of Aotearoa/New Zealand and Polynesia.

We have three tikanga or ways of being – Maori, Pakeha and Polynesian. Each tikanga has autonomy but is also closely related to the other two.

It’s like a woven piece with its distinctive individual threads. Our original constitution of 1857 was updated in 1992 to reflect the many strands that are the Anglican church in this land.
