The Church of The Holy Trinity in Pakaraka was the first church we called at on the way from the Airport at Whangerei to Kohukohu. This church was endowed by Archdeacon Henry Williams who was a missionary to the Maori people for 44 years. the church was erected by his sons and opened for worship on 23 April 1851. I think that, despite being in better condition than most of the churches we saw, it was at 160 years, also the oldest. I'll correct that if need be as I check other churches.
The wall hanging depicts the Holy Trinity and is made of flax from kneelers used in the church and made circa 1916.
The harmonium is undated but many of the churches had a harmonium. I was particularly interested because Mum had a harmonium which she played occasionally - we had very tolerant neighbours.
