NZ Methodist Church History Online
It is necessary to know a little of the past days-the people to whom the Missionaries came, the marvel of the early triumphs, the gathering clouds of war. the cruel disillusionment of the war days and the long uphill struggle to regain the confidence of the people and to re-establish the mission in the devastated areas.

Waiata Maori
The Methodist Home Mission Party was significant to
the choral scene in New Zealand, raising the status of
Maori performance during the 1920s and 1930s.
They performed to audiences throughout the country
seven days a week, almost twelve months a year, for
what amounted to fifteen years of performance.
The choir, which was later renamed the Waiata Maori
Choir in 1934, used the stage to entertain as well as to
educate their audiences about Methodism, Maori and
New Zealand.
