Search St. Andrew's Churchyard:

St Andrew's Church, Le Bons Bay was built in 1959 and designed by architects Hendry and Allan Mitchener. It is a concrete built church with a simple pleasing interior. It is included in a soon-to-be published book on the 70 best examples of church architecture in New Zealand, by Auckland University's Bill McKay. It is an excellent example of Modernism applied to Christian worship. (Information courtesy of www.akaroachurches.co.nz)

In 2016, St Andrew's Church won the Enduring Architecture award. The jury said the Banks Peninsula church had a "sophisticated modesty. The church is a wonderful exercise in the deployment of light and space; it is serious but never ponderous, and the disciplined material palette complements the design to produce a calm and quiet contemplative environment."

The cemetery is located in the churchyard to the right of the church.
