Groups & events

Helping you connect with the wider community.

We know how important it is to be connected to your community. Check out our regular rainbow social groups in Ōtautahi Christchurch and across Waitaha Canterbury, or come along to one of our events throughout the year.

Social groups

We know how important it is to be connected to your community.

Our Wednesday night social support groups have wrapped for 2023, and will be back in 2024. Keep an eye on our website, Facebook, or get in touch for more detail.

We also run a dedicated group for whānau, parents, caregivers, and kids under 13!

Our social groups are a great space to meet other people with similar experiences, to make new friends, and to connect with any further support you might need.

There's no need to apply or register, and there's no cost! Join us for our whānau group the first Sunday of every month from midday at Tūranga in the Activity Room. We can't wait to see you!


Celebration is core to our kaupapa - it's so important that we get the chance to celebrate ourselves, our lives, and our community.

Qtopia runs events throughout the year in Ōtautahi Christchurch and Waitaha Canterbury to provide opportunities to celebrate, including our popular annual Pride Ball, alongside markets, marches, panels, learning opportunities, and more.

Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram for the most up-to-date information about our events.
