A lovely service
Feb 2021
We attended the church service on Sunday, 21 February, and appreciated the time and effort put in by Priest Vivienne. We appreciated the lovely view of the mountains out the window.

Very peaceful

A strange little church tucked away from the road. The interior is very minimal but the view along the river to the mountains beyond take your breath away.

The church is located on the left hand side as you cross the bridge over the Waiho River. The church as a tudor style feel to it with small bell tower - access was not possible.

There is no parking, access is by foot off the main road. Good view of the Waiho River and bridge from the church grounds.

One of two historic churches you can visit in Franz Josef Village
Sep 2018 • Couples
The Church of St. James is a historic Anglican church built along State Highway 6 just before the valley and entrance into the glacier area. Built in the early 1930s, at one time there was a view of the glacier that could be seen through the altar windows. What a view that would have been during services.

The church is a singe hall of simple construction and open for visitation even during non-service times. You can easily pop in for a quick look around during visits to Franz Josef. There is historical information posted on the wall of the small room before you enter the worship hall.

The outside of the church is nice as well. In addition to a attractive exterior, there is a garden and nice views into the valley and mountains behind the church.

Note: With short walking distance, there is also the historic Lady of the Alps Catholic Church. It is worth a look-see as well if you enjoy visiting churches and old buildings during your travels.
