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.

Funds raised will be used to repair the church to its former glory.
St. Oswalds Memorial church is an Anglican Presbyterian Joint Venture
