A Church in the Kaipaki Community
Like many small, rural districts, Kaipaki has a great history and a wonderful community that care for the area and take pride in looking after it. At the centre of this community is Kaipaki Church, a non-denominational fellowship that now meets every Sunday at 11am (at the Kaipaki Centre) to sing, study God's Word and to worship Him.
If you're looking for a small, friendly place to come and learn and grow in your understanding of God, then we'd love to see you!
In 1871 the original church was built and used for Sunday worship alternatively by Methodists and Presbyterians. In 1901 it was moved, with the help of a traction engine, to the present site. Then in 1926, when it was due for repair, the proposal of a new non-denominational church was agreed to with trustees from each of the Methodist, Presbyterian and Anglican churches. This new non-denominational church was opened in 1928.
So, in 2021 this beautiful little church will be 150 years old.
(don't worry, we've already started planning the party!)
