Topic: Tutahi Church, Nukumaru

Topic type:

Tutahi Church is located on State Highway 3 at Nukumaru - south of Waitotara. It is built on the site of the Tauranga Ika Pa. It is a significant and spiritual place for Maori.

It is thought to have been built about 1870 and a bible is known to have been placed in the foundation stone.

An interesting story associated with the church is that apparently all the soldiers linked with the church who went away to WWII returned home. This has added to the sense of spirituality that surrounds the church.

In 2002 Dalvanius Prime was buried at this site.
