Your Perfect Wedding Venue

This beautiful, character filled historic church is the ideal venue for intimate weddings. Seating up to 90 people and with a good heating system, we welcome wedding bookings from all denominations. The huge old oak trees in the churchyard are a popular place for photos, as is the historic churchyard. To add to the romance and authenticity of your wedding day, we have a beautifully ornate historic church organ in perfect working order, which once belonged to one of the early pioneer families.

Historic Coast Road Church

First built as a Methodist place of worship by the early Wainuiomata pioneers, opening services at the Church were held on 6 February 1866.

The church is surrounded by an historic churchyard which is now a recognised archaeological site.

Today the church and churchyard are owned and in the care of The Wainuiomata Pioneer Church Preservation Society. The interior has recently been lovingly restored and the church is available for weddings, christenings, funerals, and other services for all denominations.
