Each year the Anglican Parish of Gate Pā offers free lectures to help the community understand our city's history and how it shapes our present. This year we are offering four lectures.

The first lecture will be offered by Lt Col Dr Cliff Simons. Cliff is a well-known historian, speaker and author who specialises in New Zealand's colonial and military history. He recently released the book: Soldiers, Scouts and Spies, a military history of the New Zealand Wars 1845-1864.

Cliff will be placing the story of the early missionaries within their historical context so that we can understand the enormous contribution they made to Aotearoa-New Zealand, for better and for worse, in the nineteenth century, and their legacy today.

St. George's Anglican Church, Gate Pā, sits on the site of the Battle of Pukehinahina - Gate Pā; one of the most significant events in the history of our city. We operate with the kaupapa of - let everyone who enters here be reconciled. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion at the end of each lecture.

A koha – donations will be collected at the door to help cover the costs.

All lectures are at St. Georges Anglican Church, corner of Cameron Rd and Church St, Gate Pā, on the hill next to the Mega Mitre 10.
