History

In 1912 Whanganui Meeting was part of the Wellington Monthly Meeting which covered the region from Taranaki in the north, Hawkes Bay in the east, and Wellington in the south.

In 1931, this grouping was rearranged establishing the Whanganui and Taranaki Monthly Meeting. At the December Monthly Meeting 2017, the Monthly Meeting made an application to Yearly meeting to form two separate Monthly Meetings. This was approved effective by Yearly Meeting effective from 1 January 2018.

Meetings for Worship

Whanganui Monthly Meeting comprises two Worship Groups: Whanganui and the Settlement.
