The Anglican Parish of Gate Pa invites you to a short service at St. Georges Anglican Church. The service will begin at 4pm, when the British forces began their march up Pukehinahina. We will hear an account of the battle and then have a time of silent reflection with images playing. At 4.30 the bell will be rung 60 times to remember the approximately 60 men who lost their lives during the battle. We will finish with prayers/karakia for the future of our city.
