New Zealand Methodist Church OnLine History

One hundred and fifty years of Methodism in Pirongia Mountain district and
Te Awamutu and the Waipa - 1841 - 1991.

150 years on from the first greeting to Wesleyan Missionaries in the Waipa - the greeting was again given on 4th May 1991 at Cannons Road on the banks of the Waipa River.

A journey from one site to another, a journey taking the Gospel from place to place - a journey on foot, on horse back, pushbike, motorbike and car - a journey with people as they make their commitment, receiving forgiveness and love and in turn reaching out to others. There is fun in the story - hilarity often, there are sober times and tears too.

I entourage you - read it for yourself - and not only read - but commit yourself to carry on the journey into the next decades.

"And it's from the old we travel to the new.
Keep me travelling along with You."

God's Blessings
