New Zealand is one of the most secular countries in the world. As of , (the date of the most recent census at time of writing,) less than half the population identifies as Christian, when just a few years ago Christians were the majority. Almost as many people declare no religion at all, and even of those who say they are Christian, only about 15% actually go to church.

      Irreligion in New Zealand refers to atheism, agnosticism, deism, religious scepticism and secular humanism in New Zealand society. Post-war New Zealand has become a highly secular country, meaning that religion does not play a major role in the lives of many of the population. Although New Zealand has no established religion, Christianity had been the majority religious affiliation since . New Zealand is a country that has a diverse make-up of ethnic groups, with differing religions. In order to truly have freedom of religion, this means all religions must be tolerated and made room.

      According to New Zealand’s Census, % of New Zealanders are Christian; % are Catholic, % are Anglican, % are Presbyterian, and % belong to some other denomination of Christianity. % recorded that they do not identify with a religion, and % belong to some other religion such as Islam, Hinduism, or Judaism.
