New Zealand Methodist Church OnLine History

The Methodist Church of New Zealand - Te Hahi Weteriana - passed at its 1989 Conference a resolution requiring that any Parish, Circuit or Board buying or selling property must have completed adequate research of the history of the land under consideration before approval for such purchase or sale is given on behalf of Conference.

This booklet fulfils the Conference requirements in respect of the proposed sale of the Ward Memorial Church at Northland, in the Karori-Northland Uniting Parish, to St Anne's Anglican Church at Northland in the Diocese of Wellington.

However, as this church is a memorial to the Revs Robert, Charles and Josiah Ward, aspects relating to the memorial have also been addressed.
