Facilities

Introduction

The Hibiscus Coast Presbyterian Church is proud of its facilities. These buildings are the visible evidence of the selfless commitment and generosity of so many people, past and present, who have contributed to the construction, renovation and maintenance of these premises. We value making our facilities available for hire at reasonable rates to community groups, individuals and other organisations.

Wainui Settlers' Church

997 Wainui Road, Wainui

The Wainui Settlers' Church is a monument to the faith of the early settlers in the Wainui and Waitoki Districts. This church was established in 1862 on part of a block of land of some 104 acres owned by William Lamont and gifted to the Presbyterian Church in 1862. The transfer of the acre block on which the church now stands was finalised in June 1898 after William Lamont's death by his son Thomas Beattie Lamont. The present church was built from a single kauri log donated by William Hellyer, pit sawed by Henry Glanville and Walter Moore and transported to the site by bullock wagon. The church building is registered as Category II on the register of Historic Places under the Historic Places Act 1993.

The Wainui Settlers' Church is now part of the Hibiscus Coast Presbyterian Church and regular services of worship are still held in the church. It is still largely in its original condition, with the exception of the added front porch. The church seats 40 people comfortably, with some standing room. The church is a popular venue for small weddings and is available for hire for these and other suitable events. It has limited facilities, i.e., electricity but no running water supply.
