New Zealand's Oldest Church
I took particular interest in this as it was established in 1836 4 years before my great great grandfather on dads side arrived as a pioneer (arranged by the New Zealand Company in UK) into Nelson.
By NZ standards this is a very old building located in Russel. You can still see bullet holes in its walls (most likely musket balls)
A lot of young men came across the globe to die here!
Someone still cares
I went and sat in here for a few minutes and tried to imagine the how it may have been in this part of the world over 178 years ago.
Horrible was the best I could come with...
