The Menzshed

Where Men can "Do what men do"


  • To have a place to meet and work together,
  • To create a safe, supportive, caring and respectful environment for men
  • To create an active environment in which men can share their skills, talents and knowledge with others while fostering relationships.

About Men’s Shed

It can provide a place to work and companionship for men who have been involved in wood and metalwork activities, both as hobbies and employment in the past but, because of downsizing of accommodation or a growing need to work with others for safety and mobility issues, can no longer have access to a place to continue their interests.  But it is also open to any men looking for fellowship an d a space to work at their hobbies.


The Menzshed at St Albans Uniting evolved from a partnership with Papanui High School’s Community Education department and they, along with parish and shed members, are represented on the oversight committee.  However the Day to day function of the shed is in the hands of its members who can work on projects as a group or work on their own projects.

So far there are two sessions per week, Monday 1pm – 4pm and Tuesday 1pm – 4pm .  there is room for other sessions but we need each group to include a qualified tradesperson to be part of any group for safety reasons.
