Celebration of 175 years of Nelson German Settlement, Upper Moutere/Sarau

Saturday 20th-Sunday 21st October 2018

A weekend of celebrations is planned for Labour Weekend 2018 in Upper Moutere/Sarau which, along with Hope/Ranzau, became home to a large number of German immigrant families in the 1800's.

The main events of the weekend will be held on Saturday, 20 October at 1pm at the Moutere Hills Community Centre and a special church service at 9.30am at St Paul’s Lutheran Community Church in Upper Moutere will follow the next day, which is also Moutere Artisans Open Day.

The German ambassador to New Zealand and leaders of the Lutheran Church of New Zealand and Australia hope to attend, along with representatives from the North German Mission Society which sent missionaries to New Zealand in 1843.

Registrations are essential and tickets will be limited, so we suggest you book early.
