Tikitiki, New Zealand
Sunday SchoolGrowing up as a little boy in Tikitiki New Zealand, I never appreciated how beautiful the church was that I went to Sunday School at. It wasn't until years later, returning on a tour of the East Coast, that I truly understood how blessed I'd been.
St Mary's is one of the most majestic and ornate Maori churches in the country. With tukutuku work and intricate wood carvings, the church is dedicated to the Ngati Porou soldiers who died in World War I.
