The Church of St Peter the Fisherman
Corner of Dundas Street & Annette Place, Whitianga

A feature of this building is the pinus radiata Lockwood construction. The shell was put up in a weekend 50 years ago by a team of volunteers supervised by two men from the suppliers. The building was completed by voluntary labour over an extended period of time.

Other features are the stained glass window and fishing net instead of a curtain in the sanctuary. The window was crafted by a local artist Warren Gillespie and depicts St Peter at his net and Christ walking on the water of Mercury Bay.

We are a friendly congregation and visitors are welcome to join us for a chat and a cup of tea after the 9 am Sunday service.

Hahei Community Centre
Behind the Fire Station, Hahei

We provide a service here on Easter Sunday and Christmas Day.  It is well advertised in Hahei beforehand.

This worship centre is unusual in that it is only visible during services. In 1990 the Anglican Church gave $1,000 towards the cost of materials for a community hall at Hahei. This was being built by volunteers under the supervision of a parishioner, Gaine Carrington, who is a retired builder. We were allocated a storage area which opens out to form a sanctuary. The furniture, which is bought forward for services was also locally made. Of particular interest is the beautifully carved altar. The carver was the late Trevor Nugent using swamp kauri from a local farm.
