St John's Church was first built in the 1850's. The current church is the fifth to be built on the site.  It was built in 1922, extended in 1972 and in 1997 the 150th anniversary celebrations were held.

Holy Trinity, the little church at Ohariu Valley is the original church built in 1870 and is one of the oldest churches in the Wellington Diocese in which regular services are still held.
