TARRAS COMMUNITY CHURCH
The trustees of the Tarras Community Church Charitable Trust are pleased to report that the upgrade of the Tarras church is nearly complete. We are very proud of the result and hope that you have had a chance to visit the restored church in all her glory. Without the strengthening work having been completed the church would have continued to subside and soon would have been past the point of retrieval. The future of the church is now bright, just in time for the centenary celebrations later this year.

church

27 Church Lane off Jolly Rd or Munroes Lane.
Services 11.00am 1st Sunday of the month.

The Tarras Community Church is located in the Tarras Village, less than 30minutes drive from both Wanaka & Cromwell, situated along a country lane, set on a knoll,
and surrounded by splendid evergreen trees.

Built in 1921 from community donations, the inter-denominational church has been an important part of the Tarras community for the past 100 years and is a facility the community is proud of.

In 2019, following community fundraising, grants and a generous donation, the church was transferred into the ownership of the Tarras Community Church Charitable Trust with the aim to preserve it as a church and also make it a community facility.

VENUE & EVENT SPACE HIRE
Inquiries are welcomed for the use of the church as a wedding venue and event space.
Create your event – bring your celebrant, exhibit your artistry, hold your concert.
