  • Very pretty little church. I am not a church goer myself but love the peace and tranquility of this church and all the history that goes with it. Very pretty windows. Is also nice to walk around the village here. Suitable for all ages. Small walk from car park to site, there is a little shop and toilets on site
  • It took us a a minute to find it but it was well worth the search it was a very unique small church that had this beautiful picture of Christ standing on the water as you looked out the window and he was dressed in his Mari clothing and very unique experience I strongly recommend this place if you're in the area you got to go seek it out it was in 1989 when we were there
  • 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.
