On the 3rd January 1882, at a meeting of local officials, it was decided that “taking into consideration the increasing population of Kirwee, and the liberal offer of Capt. Tosswill of a very suitable site, it is desirable that steps should be taken towards the erection of a Church at Kirwee“. http://keteselwyn.peoplesnetworknz.info/places_of_interest/topics/show/380-st-georges-church-kirwee
