There must be some stained glass somewhere in town but every time I tried to think where I might find some, I came up blank. But I do have heaps in my archives. They aren't big and grand, most of them are quite simple and suit perfectly the simple little wooden churches they adorn. They aren't literally in my town but all are in Northland, the province in which I live.
I think the Anglican Church at Awanui is the northern most church I have photographed. Come to think of it, there must be some in the tiny settlements further north, I must go north again and see if I can find them. I'm going north next week but maybe not that far.
Anglican Church, Awanui
In some of the small rural churches in the north, there is a lovely mix of Maori and European influences. St Peters, Punguru is, I think, the best example of this.
I love the blues and greens in this church window at Rangi Point. It reflects perfectly the colours of its environment, sitting as it does right on the banks of the Hokianga Harbour.
And finally, the lovely little window of the smallest church in New Zealand near Te Kopuru.
