Northland St Gabriel’s Church


Pawarenga, Hokianga, Northland


Gabriel’s Church Trustees



St Gabriel's was one of the largest and most expensive of the new churches in the Hokianga to be built by 1900. Today, it remains as one of the earliest churches still on its original site and is definitely a Hokianga destination worth making, as it sits on a promontory in clear sight for miles before reaching it.


Salmond Reed Architects prepared an initial condition assessment report in 2008, returning to the site in 2013 to reassess the failing building condition. Further detailed documentation for much needed repairs and maintenance followed and remedial work to cladding, buttresses, windows and the tower and bell turret was completed in 2015.
