St Paul's Anglican Church, Kaiwaka

A well known icon in Kaiwaka is St Paul's Anglican church. The Northern Advocate dated 30th March 1935 says:

"A new church was opened in Kaiwaka yesterday afternoon by Bishop Averill in the presence of a large congregation. The new building which is in the Paparoa Parish is a wooden structure and was dedicated to St Paul. After the dedication service 15 candidates were confirmed and later 5 infants were baptised. Among the clergy present were the Revs. H.T. Steele, M.L Bull, A. Bull, Hart and Sinclair. Last night a confirmation service was held in Waipu". 

The church is still in use today. Linking up with Inspired Sunday.
