  • Amazing lakeside church with great architecture and stunning integration of Maori culture with the nearby marae.
  • Graveyard sacred to Maori where Soldiers of War are laid to rest. The Church is an icon of Rotorua. Sunday services are unique as sermon is delivered in Te Reo Maori.
  • Amazing place to stop and reflect. Complementary blend of Maori and Anglican designs.
  • 6Feb77 I got married here. And I am still married. What's to say that can improve things? Nothing except .. praise God.
  • Very attractive church with some interesting artwork. Well known for one window depicting a Maori Christ seemingly walking on the water of the lake outside.
