Principals of Methodist Colleges in New Zealand


Trinity Theological College and Hostel opened on February 27th, 1929. Eighteen months previously the Foundation Stone had been laid by the Governor General, Sir Charles Fergusson, who looked to the new College for "sympathy and knowledge of the world and mankind, for distinguishing between the fundamental and the non-essential. While the Church must ever be alert to the new insights and methods of the passing decades, its central task would always be to bring people to Christ."
