Description

Cemetery notes and/or description: Gothic Revival Church built in timber. The East Takaka Church is one of the oldest churches in Golden Bay. A public meeting was held at Upper Takaka in 1866 to consider the building of a church for the district and in 1868 a deed of trust was concluded providing for the land on which a church could be built, and to carry out the resolution to build the church. It is thought that the first service was held in the church in November 1868. The deed of trust provided that the church should be used for weekly worship in accordance with the ritual of the Church of England, and that it also be available to other protestants for worship with the agreement of the trustees. There is a memorial tablet in the church to the memory of William Laurence Handcock, a lay reader and original trustee of the church, whose family had made the free gift of the land on which the church was built. The church is no longer used for regular services.
