Coast Road Church

Coast Road Church is a historic church in Wainuiomata, Lower Hutt. The church was originally a Methodist church built in 1866, but is now multi-denominational. Although the church and surrounding churchyard is now owned by the Wainuimata Pioneer Church Preservation Society and is run independently from any religious organisation, it is still a consecrated church. The society welcomes same sex marriages. Couples can use either a marriage celebrant or a religious minister to officiate at their wedding.
