About

Rangiatea Church in Otaki, New Zealand was the oldest Maori Anglican church in New Zealand. Originally completed in 1851, the building was burnt down by an arsonist in 1995, and by 2003 the church had been completely rebuilt.

In 1848, Te Rauparaha who had just returned to Otaki from Australia, issued the challenge of building the church to the chief of Te Wehiwehi, who accepted.Rangiatea Church was built under the direction of Te Rauparaha and English missionary Octavius Hadfield 
During the original construction in the 1840s, large totara logs had to be floated down rivers at nearby Ohau and Waikawa. The logs became the ridge pole and the central pillars of the church. The rafters, pillars and slabs were also made from totara 
The design of the church is unique in that it incorporates ideas from both English and Maori church design.
