After the hectic time in Rotorua, this is a delightful peaceful corner of tranquility. the volunteer on duty was very pleasant and informative. the church is part of the old village and that too is worth a just. about 10 mins walk from town centre.

Right on beautiful lake Rotorua, this is one of few churches I have walked in and immediately felt a warm,spiritual feeling in the air (bearing in mind that I am not religious!). The way in which Māori design and christian religion are combined here is wonderfully strange and interesting. Well worth visiting for the designs inside and the lady inside... More

Entry by donation to raise funds for repair. This church was such a tranquil haven with amazing Mauri art inside. The guide was most helpful and let us take dozens of ohotos

Walk around the gravestones and learn about local history. The church is beautiful, but closed up tight, even on a Sunday evening.

We visited without an appointment so did not get to see the inside. The outside however was beautiful - and it was interesting to learn a bit about the local history.

Historically important; beautifully maintained; very photogenic. A must-see building in Rotorua surrounded by a very active geothermal field. Please leave a donation in the church to help with its up-keep.

We walked around the Church and realised the beauty of the history of it. Most unusual to walk around and feel the warmth of the ground because of the thermal activity underneath you. It is a true Maori village and if you speak to the guide, she will tell you lots. Spent an hour there before having lunch.

We had an organised walk around Ohinemutu village and our Maori guide was a churchwarden at this church. Since she was born and bred here she knew vast amounts about the village and it history which made the walk so informative. The geothermals were all over the place and you realsied how thin is the earth's crust in Rotorua. That... More

We were advised to visit this beautiful church, wood carvings are brilliant , windows well worth a look, one of Christ walking on water. A little hard to get to but worth the effort, interesting surrounds with steam vents all around.

Entry is by donation, and worth it! A very kind and helpful woman was willing to answer any of my questions. You are able to take photos inside. I love the beautiful blend of Maori and western religion.
