St Peter’s Church Mt Maunganui

The parish of St Peter’s in Mt. Maunganui welcomes all choirs from the Waikato and Bay of Plenty to this year’s choral festival at the Anglican Church, 11 Victoria Road.

It is a beautiful, picturesque,stone building located in the heart of the town just around the corner from the Mount’s main street (see the map) with only a short walk to the shops and dining opportunities of all varieties.

St. Peter’s has in recent years experienced a rejuvenation in its music ministry and now boasts a trained chancel choir which leads services weekly , a resident chamber choir, and an annual chamber music series.

In 2010 the church installed a custom­-designed, two-­manual Johannus organ.

The Vicar and Chancel Choir of St. Peter’s are eager and excited to welcome participants as hosts of the 2013 RSCM Choral Festival on 21 September, 2013, at 2:00 PM when rehearsals of works by Archer and Palestrina begin. This is followed by refreshments and a recital/concert at 4.00pm.
