We offer a wide variety of classes covering creative art & design, culinary delights, culture, dance, ESOL / general English, healthy mind & body, languages, photography and technology. You’ll find details of all our classes here on Eventfinder and on our website.

Our social activities include bridge, mah jong, chess, seniors coffee and chat, walking group, film club, garden group, Scrabble, knitting group, U3A Parnell and Toastmasters Club.

We also offer a schedule of heritage walks - both guided walks and our soon-to-be-launched self-guided walks about central Auckland's historic suburbs.

Every term, you’ll find something new to learn, discover or just have a go at while you meet people and make new friends. Our classes are led by knowledgeable and experienced tutors. Our group activities, such as bridge and mah jong, are coordinated by wonderful community volunteers.

We offer a fresh programme twice a year. Our programme for Terms 1 & 2 runs from January to June; the Terms 3 & 4 programme runs from July to December. Most classes and activities are held at Parnell Community Centre, in the Jubilee Building, where there’s plenty of parking outside business hours. Other classes are held at our Glanville Community Campus.

In 2012 Parnell Trust created a satellite schedule of Inner City activities and classes for Auckland CBD residents. Most of these are held at The Pioneer Women's and Ellen Melville Hall, Freyberg Place off High Street.
