33 TE RAUPARAHA STREET
Rangiātea Church is the oldest Māori Anglican church in New Zealand. Originally completed in 1851 under the direction of Te Rauparaha and English missionary Octavius Hadfield. The building was burnt down by an arsonist in 1995 and rebuilt reopening in 2003.
During the original construction in the 1840s, large totara logs had to be floated down rivers at nearby Ohau and Waikawa. The logs became the ridge pole and the central pillars of the church. The rafters, pillars and slabs were also made from totara.
The design of the church is unique in that it incorporates ideas from both English and Māori church design.
