The Nazareth Christchurch Community of Care is currently being developed on 8 hectares at Brougham St, and replaces the previous Nazareth House facilities which were irreparably damaged in the Christchurch earthquakes.

The Community of Care - once fully developed - will include a rest home and hospital, chapel, marketplace (with pharmacy, retail, consulting suite, hairdressing salon, cinema), cafe, dementia care unit, and 62 two and three bedroom Licence to Occupy Villas.

The complex is owned by the Sisters of Nazareth, and managed by its business arm Nazareth Care Australasia.

We provide high quality services which reflect the mission, philosophy and values of the Sisters of Nazareth. Our core values are: Love, Patience, Compassion, Respect, Justice and Hospitality.

We describe our approach as "The Nazareth Way". We are Gospel based, and committed to honouring and reflecting the Charism of the Sisters of Nazareth; we demonstrate a person centred approach and excellence in our practice; everything we do comes from the heart of who we are.

We respect and welcome people of all beliefs and denominations.

The complex includes 62 premium Licence to Occupy Villas, being developed in stages. The first three stages are available for occupancy, and many residents have already moved in. Display Villa is available for inspection.

Prospective residents may buy Licences to Occupy; however the ownership of all villas always remains with the Trustees of the Sisters of Nazareth.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.


In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet. The DHB Shared Services website provides additional information about this service.
