Waitara Methodist Celebrating 100 years 1875-1975





Waitara Methodist Church 125th 1875-2000

The weekend of the 18th and 19th November 2000 was a very special one for Methodists, past and present who have associations with the Waitara church; people coming from many places from Foxton to Whangarei; and messages of goodwill from as far afield as the U.S.A. There were approximately 120 registrations for the Jubilee.

The church buildings were looking smart in a new coat of paint, made possible by a generous grant from the Taranaki Electricity Trust. A Jubilee booklet is to be published in the new year and distributed to all those who registered. The cost of this will be covered by a T.S.B. Bank grant.

Saturday morning saw people registering, greeting old friends, and then joining in a wonderful lunch together. There was a 'cutting of the cake' ceremony and a brief outline of the history of the church and its people.
