Worth a visit for its beauty and history, supposedly built on the site chosen by Maori Chief Hongi Hika, who invited the missionaries in. Worth a look when you visit the Stone Store.

Was taking a look around the Stone Store when we noticed a pretty church on a hill overlooking the Store. The St James Anglican church was worth visiting for the interesting old gravestones, the architecture, the views, its character and the feeling of history. The...More

After walking around the Stone Store Basin this little church can be viewed sitting above it all. Take a walk up the path from the carpark. (Toliets at carpark just in case) You can also access from road further up the hill. If you cross...More

Very beautiful setting that included the church, an old schoolhouse, and the Waimate Mission House where New Zealand's founding document was signed. The church is small and quite old but well preserved. Next to it is an interesting cemetry overlooking beautiful green hills and valleys....More

This is a beautiful part of the history of New Zealand. This little quaint church is nestled amoungst natural greenery close to the Stone Store and Kemp House and still has weekly services. A most peaceful place to breathe!

The first chapel on this site was built in 1823, but the current one was built in 1878. Very attractive from the outside and a lovely, peaceful ambience inside, with pretty stained windows. The gravestones were also really interesting.

If you are a history buff, this is a must visit. Reading the headstones and walking through the grounds was very interesting.

It seems that there are churches every where and this is no exception. Lovely little church overlooking the basin. Worth a visit when passing.

A short drive off the road, this beautiful old church stands among some old trees. Apparently one of the oldest churches in New Zealand, it is great to go in and just sit and ponder for a few moments. Of special interest are some of...More
