St Peter’s Village Hall is a much loved community venue. It was built in 1918 for the Anglican Church and has been used by the Church and the Community since then. In 2007 it was sold to the Paekākāriki Community and is now run by the Paekākāriki Community Trust.

The Trust raises funds for the Hall’s renovation and upkeep.
Since 2012 major restoration work has been done, including rewiring and installing a contemporary lighting, heating and cooling system. The toilets have been upgraded, the interior painted, and a new commercial-style kitchen has been installed.
The stage upgrade includes a Public Address system (incl Cordless Mics), a projector and screen, theatre lighting and red velvet curtains.
A large deck has been added that can accommodate a 6m x 3m Marquee which is now available for hire.
The Hall floor has been replaced with new Matai floorboards, using recycled weather boards from a house in Te Aroha and Nae Nae. This will ensure the Hall will be able to be enjoyed by the community for many years to come.
Landscaping has been completed by buildng steps on the south side of the property allowing easier access to the Bike Library, and connecting the property from Ames Street to the deck. Wifi has been installed.
Upgrades continue to occur as and when finances are available. Voluntary input from Village residents into the Hall is vital to ensure these upgrades.
Paekākāriki Community Trust
Annual General Meeting of the Paekākāriki Community Trust
Sunday 18 September 2022, 2pm.
The Paekākāriki Community Trust was created in 2007 when the Anglican Church sold St Peter’s Hall to the community for $1.00.
The hall was in a dilapidated condition at the time, and has since been completely renovated, including a rebuilt south wall, repainting, new toilets, new kitchen, new floor, a deck on the eastern side and improved access on the south side. This has all been done with grants, fundraising and, importantly, with the labour of many many volunteers.
St Peter’s Hall today is a fantastic asset for the local community and is in constant use for all kinds of events and activities.
The Trust Deed sets out our objectives, and these guide everything we do. The objectives are:
To refurbish and maintain St Peter’s Hall at Paekākāriki and to manage it as a community centre and resource for the whole community
To establish any new facility which enhances the social wellbeing of the community as a whole
To encourage the economic and social sustainability of Paekākāriki to help ensure that local services are retained for the benefit of present and future generations
To increase employment opportunities for Paekākāriki residents in the Paekākāriki area
To assist cultural, not for profit, heritage and community services in Paekākāriki
To undertake activities that are conducive to the attainment of the above objectives and anything else that will advance any of these aims
To develop partnerships with other organisations and agencies that will help the Trust achieve its objectives
Trustees are elected annually at the AGM. We encourage new people to put themselves forward for election. And we welcome volunteers throughout the year to help with our regular fundraising events – the Art Show, Book Fair and Film Festival.
