Verse of The Day
“U tonu hoki toku whakaaro, e kore te mate, te ora ranei, e kore nga anahera, nga rangatiratanga ranei, e kore nga mea onaianei, e kore nga mea e puta mai a mua, e kore nga mana, E kore te tiketike, e kore te hohonu, e kore tetahi atu mea hanga, e kaha ki te momotu i a tatou i te aroha o te Atua, i tera i roto nei i a Karaiti Ihu, i to tatou Ariki.” (Romans 8:38-39)

More than 12ha of land on hills overlooking the village have been earmarked for apartments - to be known as Waiwera Heights.

Waiwera, known for its hot pools and water slides, will be redeveloped into a town which the developers say will be a flagship for urban design. They hope to recreate its original character as an upmarket spa, connected by water access to Auckland.
