St George's, Turakina
This is a small wooden country church situated on a hill looking across Turakina to the sea.
It is of simple rectangular construction so the sanctuary is broad and enhanced by a locally made altar.
St George’s has a unique French pedal organ which has never been moved and is of great interest to visiting organists.
There is a playground and a hall with a kitchen and toilets, sometimes used by the community.
St Stephen's church in Marton was founded in 1871 when the foundation stone was laid by Bishop Hadfield.
The church was designed by George F. Allen of Wanganui in the perpendicular Gothic style. This stunning church features a free standing belfry and a Norman & Beard organ in original condition.
St Andrews Church is located on the right hand side of Bridge St (State Highway 3) as you travel north towards Wanganui.
The church was built in 1881 for a cost of 388 pounds by Mr J. Bull, the local builder. The building is of Totara timber, simple in design, but attractive.
St. Thomas was built in 1877 at a cost of 590 pounds. Consecrated by Bishop Hadfield, the architect was Charles Tringham. St Thomas is a mid-Victorian Gothic building with tower, apse and sanctuary and built with totara pegs and dowels, rather than nails.
This country church situated at Tutu Totara north of Marton was built in 1924 to a Frederick de Clere design replacing the original wooden building of 1884 also by de Clere. Tutu Totara is the burial place of Octavius Hadfield, missionary and Bishop of Wellington.
