Welcome to Hororata Parish
“The proof that God raised Jesus from the dead is not the empty tomb, but the full hearts of his transformed disciples. The crowning evidence that he lives is not a vacant grave, but a spirit-filled fellowship. Not a rolled-away stone, but a carried-away church.” by Clarence Jordan
A Brief History
Prior to 1875, church services were held in the home of Bentley Coton. Following the building of the first school in 1870 (across the road from the church) services were held there. Check our the fabulous historical photos we have. Just click here History
Twinkle Tots is a preschool music group which meets during term time weekly at the Hororata School Library. Thirty minute sessions are informal and open to everyone. Our aim is to provide a safe and caring environment for preschool children to explore their creativity through music and provide parents, grandparents, caregivers or whanau with a way to meet and catch up with locals and make new friends. Great if you are new to the area. A $2 donation is welcomed.
It has come to pass that our annual 'Country Shop Day' has retired from service. Thank you to all who contributed so much to organize this event.
