as told by Keith Newman

The sermon that the Revd Samuel Marsden (1765-1838) preached at Oihi, Bay of Islands, Christmas Day 1814 and the service he conducted were the culmination of his growing relationship with Ruatara (?-1815) in particular, and also the formal inauguration of missionary beginnings in New Zealand.


Keith Newman will be explaining this amazing story in more detail.
