A Brief History:
The Reformed Churches of New Zealand, of which the Reformed Church of Silverstream is a part, are a federation of congregations found in both the North and South Islands. In the 1950’s, many European immigrants came to New Zealand. Those who were committed to the Biblical truths held forth by the 16th century Protestant Reformation, found that many of New Zealand’s Protestant churches had departed from their Reformational roots. These immigrants established the Reformed Churches of New Zealand. The first three such churches were instituted in 1953. The Reformed Church of Silverstream, a “daughter” of the Reformed Church of Wellington, was instituted in 1963.
