The 10am Congregation is the English-language congregation of Wesley Church, tracing its roots to the first Methodist Service in Te Whanganui-a -Tara in 1839. The name '10am' refers to the regular Sunday service times, but encompasses all the cultures who worship with us. We describe ourselves as generally progressive in outlook.
We join the other Wesley congregations in expressing our Parish Mission Strategy Statement: Our mission is to demonstrate the transforming love of God both in the care, nurture and development, separately and together, of the Wesley congregations, and in outreach to the city community, with a particular emphasis on making our resources available in response to expressed need.
We meet for English-language services each Sunday at 10am. On the 1st Sunday of the month the congregation joins in the combined parish service of Holy Communion at 10am. We also celebrate Holy Communion quarterly as part of a 10am service.
On a 3rd Sunday (when there’s a five-Sunday month), a café-style service is held in the New Hall. This is a more informal service seated around tables. We often have a guest speaker and opportunity for discussion. Morning tea is available throughout the service.

The 10am Singing Group practises after morning tea on Sundays in the Drama Christi Studio and participates in services at least once a month. New singers are always welcome. Phone Philip Garside on (04) 475 8855 for more information.
