Enjoy a colouring-in activity based on the interior elements of one of the larger and more prominent Mountfort-designed Gothic Revival churches, built when Papanui was still a village. Then hit the word finder activity based on the St Paul’s architectural features. Simple yet graceful, the recognisable kauri structure’s high ceiling lifts worshippers’ voices heavenwards. Take in its exposed wooden trusses, which showcase the craft of the build.
