Traditionally known as the Māori New Year, Matariki officially became a public holiday in 2022. For Māori, Matariki is a time to reflect and celebrate the year that has been and to prepare for the year ahead. 

Here you will find a collection of resources to help you incorporate this celebration into your worship life.

If you’d prefer to download rather than scroll, you can access these resources in our Resourcing Kete on Google Drive.
