Due to the Christchurch earthquakes, the Methodist Church of New Zealand Archives Collection has been moved to a storage facility in Christchurch.

The majority of the Archives Collection is available at the storage facility, with the exception of overseas publications and microfilm or microfiche. This means that we are currently unable to provide copies of articles published in Methodist newspapers. Marriage registers are not accessible but the information can be obtained from the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages. See
