The little land mark stone church, St. Oswald's, on State Highway 1 was severely damaged in the Kaikoura Earthquake.
St. Oswald's Memorial Church was built in 1927 in memory of Charles Hector Heaton Murray by his parents, then gifted to the Nelson Anglican Diocese. Following the Canterbury Earthquakes of 2010/2011 most stone structures built before 1930 throughout the NZ Anglican Diocese became unviable to insure for earthquake damage.
As a result of the November 14, 2016 Kaikoura Earthquake this landmark building suffered significant damage.

St. Oswalds Memorial church is an Anglican Presbyterian Joint Venture
Funds raised will be used to repair the church to its former glory.
Thank you for your donation it is much appreciated. We are looking forward to the day we can walk in the door and enjoy the peaceful space. Kind regards Laura
