  • Interesting walk around the indigenous village by the thermal springs. The church is lovely and worth a look in when there.
  • 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 lakeside church with great architecture and stunning integration of Maori culture with the nearby marae.
  • A beautiful and very moving place.
  • Amazing place to stop and reflect. Complementary blend of Maori and Anglican designs.
