Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Northland Region / Bay of Islands / Paihia / St Paul's Anglican Church
St Paul's Anglican Church remains one of New Zealand's most notable churches. Dating back to 1925, the historic bluestone building is actually the fourth iteration of New Zealand's very first church, which stood at the same place back in 1823. History buffs should check out the gravestones in the back--several important Europeans from the 19th century lie buried in the adjoining graveyard--and the country's second oldest hand organ.

St Paul's is the sixth church built on this site and was constructed using Kawakawa stone in 1925. It stands on the site of the original mission church, a simple, bulrush hut erected in 1823. Look for the native birds in the stained glass above the altar.
No priest tonight, 80% of goers are out of town visitors, nonetheless the atmosphere was good. Beautiful looking building, well maintained.
