The purpose of this booklet is not to tell the story of the Methodist involvement in Te Awamutu and its surrounds. This booklet's purpose is to outline briefly the history of the current Worship Centre, its development and usage. However, a brief over view of the Te Awamutu Parish may assist the reader to understand the arrival, the purpose and the achievements of Methodism in Te Awamutu. This will be outlined first of all, after which the history of the1 "bricks and mortar" of the Parish Worship Centre will be the main feature of this publication.
In the interest of historical accuracy all quotations from past publications have been reproduced exactly as published. These quotations are contained in framed printings throughout this booklet.
