Woodend Methodist Church

Lotteries & Heritage NZ funds okayed for cultural heritage project.


The Woodend Methodist Church Conservation Plan was key to the decision by NZ Lotteries and by Heritage New Zealand to approve significant funding towards the rebuild of the 2010 earthquake damaged church.

The Conservation Plan (CP) identifies the cultural heritage values of the church and highlights future new uses to provide for greater community involvement.

The Plan took a conservation approach to damage and repairs and compatibility of any proposed adaption for new uses that the community asked for.

The CP follows ICOMOS recommended Assessment Criteria which records the cultural values of the Church for the community, region, and nation.
