St David’s Presbyterian Church Fundraising for Survival

This WW1 memorial church, situated on Khyber Pass, Grafton, and built in 1927 has been closed since late 2014 and needs earthquake strengthening.

Friends of St David’s, a group with a mission to stop demolition, to fundraise and restore the church, and to ensure it has an on-going community use, has been formed.

See their website here.

For three months from the eve of Anzac Day 2015 there is a free public art installation on the church’s exterior titled The Art of Remembrance.

Internationally acclaimed artist Max Gimblett has created a solid brass quatrefoil to represent each kiwi soldier that served in WW1. These individually hand-screenprinted artworks are a stunning and permanent pledge to Remember Them, and can be bought to fundraise for the church’s future.
