St Thomas Tamaki

Serving Kohimarama since 1843.


One of the oldest stone churches in New Zealand, St Thomas Tamaki recently celebrated 175 years in Kohimarama.


In 1843, the 24 residents of Tamaki were anxious to have their own place of worship. Each resident was approached for a cash or labour contribution and Bishop Selwyn offered to subsidise their donations pound for pound.
