Our church is made up of four congregations who gather on Sundays in different locations in the Maori Hill village in Dunedin, by the Highgate-Drivers Road intersection.
As a church, we are committed to helping people know Jesus, by living worshipfully, helping others and having the habits of faith. Each of our congregations expresses these things in different and distinctive ways, like unique individuals within one family. Across the Highgate congregations, we want to be a people who support and encourage each other as we journey with God, so that we glorify God in everything we do.

There are four distinctive worship communities in the Highgate Church:
(Breakfast at the Coronation Hall) meets at 8.30 am in the Coronation Hall (5 Balmacewen Road) for breakfast. The service starts at 9.00 am and finishes before 10.00 am. B@tCH runs during school terms only.
Children and adults gather for worship on Sunday morning at 10.00 am in 580 Highgate. You may know this building as Maori Hill Church. Children and their leaders move to Kids@ around 10.15 am. At 11.00 am we meet over refreshments in Stewart Hall. Communion is shared on the first Sunday of each month. All are invited to participate.
Communion Seated in the Round (a.k.a Afternoon Communion)
This service is held on the 2nd Sundays of February, April, June, August, October and December at 2:30 pm. The thirty minute service is followed by afternoon tea held in the Martin Room. This intimate space provides a sense of community for people who often cannot make morning worship.
Led by young adults, Table services are particularly focused toward youth and young adults, as we wrestle with questions of what it means to live a Jesus-shaped life in the world. The Table meets on the last Sunday of the month at 6.00-8.00 pm in the Maori Hill Church Hall.
We exist to give witness to the life, death, resurrection and teaching of Jesus in worship and service:
Giving Beyond Ourselves
The congregations of Highgate Presbyterian Church are committed to serving the communities of which we are a part. These communities may be the people we work with, the people three doors away on our street, the sports or arts clubs of which we are members. We also seek to make a difference nationally and internationally in as we partner with communities beyond our neighbourhood.
A joint international community with which we have a partnership is Vaum Primary and Junior Secondary Schools, Paama, Vanuatu. In the period 22nd August – 2nd September 2016 a work party is travelling to Paama to complete a number of small water, health and safety projects.
