Te Whare Karakia o Ōnuku: Church near Onuku marae, Akaroa, Banks Peninsula, South Island, New Zealand. Across the road from the marae, the red and white historic Whare Karakia o Ōnuku gleams against the green hillside and harbour. The foundation stone for the whare karakia was laid in 1876 and the building officially opened in 1878 as the first non-denominational church in New Zealand. The opening was attended by many including Māori from iwi all over New Zealand. Intended as a place of worship for Māori and Pākehā, the church drew the two communities together. In 1939 the whare karakia was restored to its original state in time for an Akaroa Centenary Service in 1940 that was attended by over 1000 people. Infor from Christchurch City Libraries.
