The Times May Have Changed But Our Purpose Remains The Same

2021 marks the 50th year of Anglican Family Care and we are planning a year of celebration!

Beginning with a HOUSE & GARDEN TOUR on 14 February, we have an array of stunning homes to view & gardens to stroll through on the Taieri. One of our featured gardens has a collection of heritage roses that have been recognised as “A Garden of National Significance” (5 stars), as assessed by the Royal New Zealand Institute of Horticulture.

Tickets are $30 per person, available from our Dunedin office (266 Hanover St), De Winkel Mosgiel (128 Gordon Road, Mosgiel), Simply Flowers & Events (70 Musselburgh Rise) and our website

A fantastic Christmas gift idea!

Our major event for 2021 will be on 9 October, when we will be hosting a celebratory Black Tie Gala Dinner at Selwyn College, Dunedin. There will be further details about this, but save the date now!


Carefully curated over the past decade, author Julia Stuart has been faithfully documenting our history and has produced a book, which will be available for purchase from early next year.

As we plan to celebrate our first 50 years in 2021, it provides an opportunity to ensure that we have measures in place to protect the future of Anglican Family Care, so that we’re sustainable and are around for the next 50 years and beyond.
