It's a lovely little church to view from the outside. You are strongly recommended to give a donation to go inside (which isn't a donation, to me). I get it, but just charge an admission fee. But, once inside, it is a pretty church to...More

i love going into this church. I can't help but think what it was like when it first went up. The beautiful maori carvings you just have to visit to see what i'm writing about.

it was raining, and we saw a demonstration of the hot underground, because from all the leaks, where the rain ran down came steam. It was spectacular - even more than the sight around town

If you come to Rotorua you must see this. I have been to Yellowstone in the U.S. and this ( on a much smaller scale ) was just as impressive. Geysers, boiling mud pots, boardwalks and viewpoints. Be prepared for the heavy smell of sulphur...More

We walked here to view the church not knowing that the hours it is open are 10-3 so we missed the inside but still worth visiting. The war cemetery for fallen Maori soldiers was overlooking the lake and so interesting to read the inscriptions. You...More

I was expecting more. I’m quite sure the church and its cemetery have real historical significance, but I found little of interest to a casual visitor.

We truly enjoyed the wonderful sermon that we were blessed to have heard at this church. The glasswork of Jesus on the Water was beautiful. I recommend visiting this church if you are in the area on a Sunday.

This is a lovely little church of Maori origins. Inside are beautiful carvings and weavings. The Galilee chapel has a beautiful etched window showing Christ and because of its position it looks as if he is walking on the lake.
