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 9.30 am Sunday service.
