Waikumete Chapel of Faith


This baby was built in apparently 1886 and is on the grounds of Auckland's Waikumete Cemetery. It was built by a man named Ebenezer Morris who emigrated to NZ in 1877. He also had other business in the Kaipara district of Matakohe plus Auckland and Thames. It's named the Chapel of of Faith and was originally as a mortuary chapel but is now being hired out for spiritual events, christenings, weddings, funerals and prayer meetings.

On the day we visited it was closed so all I could get was a photo of the outside.

  7. It is very odd the things one remembers. I don't think I've been inside it but I do recall who I was with and that we saw a kingfisher perched nearby.
