Welcome to Glentunnel Chapel Online
This quaint old chapel was originally built in Kirwee, but was relocated using horses and a traction engine to the existing site in Glentunnel, about 80 years ago, to accommodate the brethren fellowship of Glentunnel and the surrounding areas. Prior to that the fellowship met at Waireka in a home and continued for many years as a strong vibrant home fellowship. The chapel brought new opportunities and was located on an old blacksmith’s property where it is located today. Over the years families have come and gone, however the fellowship continues to remain strong in the area as it seeks to serve Christ in the district. The main purpose of the chapel is to be a place where Christians can come to bring their praise and worship to God, but also to be a place where others may encounter the wonderful Love of God; a love that surpasses our understanding, and to be a place of nurture, discipleship and encouragement.
Though Glentunnel Chapel is an old building, the fellowship also recognises that we live in a modern world and that we need to be in the world, just as Jesus, our Lord, called us to be. For this reason we are in the process of developing our on-line site, so that others too may hear of the message of salvation, and find the hope that is preached from God’s Word each Sunday.
