Welcome

Arahina ministry and function centre provides training, education, counselling and accommodation/functions hire. Check out the relevant pages on this site for details.

Arahina is situated in the small town of Marton, which because of it’s central placement in the North Island of New Zealand make it an ideal location for hosting the multitude of programmes and functions that it does.

Accommodation, Functions, Meetings and Retreats

Arahina has 18 rooms with ensuites that can accommodate 28 people, an auditorium for 150 people, one small meeting room and a lounge. Catering is also available.

Government agencies in health, education, welfare, justice, agriculture and environment have typically used our facilities. Swim clubs have used Marton’s Olympic size pool for summer swim schools and booked out our entire centre. Church groups have liked Arahina’s grounds and environment for planning, leadership and retreats. Give us a call and see if we can help.

Training Education Counselling and Healing Services

Training, education, counselling and healing services or programmes are also hosted at Arahina. They are staffed by volunteers from throughout New Zealand and are supported by International volunteers on service abroad.
