Historic churches at risk

From Nine To Noon, 9:36 am on 4 June 2015

Churches around the country are shutting their doors as congregations and funds dwindle, and ageing buildings need seismic strengthening.

St David's Presbyterian church in Khyber Pass, Auckland, closed last December, and faces possible demolition.

Founder of the Friends of St David's Trust, Paul Baragwanath and the Chief Executive of Heritage New Zealand Bruce Chapman talk to Kathryn Ryan about the plight of many churches and the innovative ways some communities are going about saving them. www.RememberThem.nz
