Event details

The Anglican St John's Theological College in Meadowbank was established by Bishop Selwyn, who was sent out in 1842 to develop an orderly Anglican Church in the new colony.

Selwyn's college, a large venture for early Auckland, served both Māori and English with schools, a training college, hospital and farm as well as the theological college.

This tour will include the original buildings, the chapel (1847), stone kitchen (1846), dining hall (1849) and graveyard.

It is one in a series organised by the Auckland Inter-Faith Council inviting Aucklanders to explore the sacred spaces and learn about the heritage of Auckland's various faith communities.
