More Info →Maori Anglican Church, Moutoa

The Historic Turongo Anglican Church was originally built from local timber c1879 at Moutoa. Being built upon a small hill with somewhat sandy foundation, Turongo fell into decay. This building is said to be the third on the same site. In the 1930s local elders gathered up the sound totara and re-erected this smaller building from the old timber. It was rededicated 5 March 1937 by the Bishop of Aotearoa, assisted by Canon W. G. Williams and Reverends P. H. Leonard, P. Temuera and H. Rangiihu of Hawke's Bay. The church was moved to Poutu Marae near Shannon in 1965.
