Hobsonville Church

The 1875 Hobsonville Church & Settlers' Cemetery is at 1 Scott Road, Hobsonville, and is a Listed Historic Place on The New Zealand Heritage List. The kauri building was built in 1875 as a combined meeting place, church and school incorporating a graveyard in the grounds. In addition to Rice Owen Clark, one of the first European settlers in Hobsonville, all five of the original trustees of the land in 1877 are buried in the graveyard, Joshua Carder, R O Clark Jnr, Joshua Ockleston, Thomas Scott and William Sinton, along with members of other Hobsonville settler families, including Anderson, Boyd, Luckens, Midgley, Williams and Wiseley.

Volunteers preserve, maintain and protect the heritage Church building and graveyard as an historic district amenity, many with generations of family buried in the graveyard.
