St. Georges Anglican Church sits on the site of the Battle of Gate Pa. Over the last two weekends we have hosted a lecture series on the battles of Gate Pa and Te Ranga on 29 April and 21 June 1864.

Following on from this set we are now offering free lectures on the Treaty of Waitangi. This is an opportunity to hear about why the Treaty came about, what happened during the days around Feb. 6th 1840, and how the Treaty came to be signed by iwi around New Zealand, and some of the key dates since.

The lectures will be given by Cliff Simons, a local military historian whose doctorate is on the New Zealand Wars. He is not trying to push any agenda, just help people to be more informed about the story of the Treaty.

There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion at the end of the presentation.
