Ohinemutu - In Memory of Rev. Seymour Mills Spencer

 Also mentioned is the son of Seymour Spencer,  Rev. Frederick Hamilton Spencer and the Maori workers who assisted them in their missionary work.

"The window depicts Rev. Seymour Spencer handing Christian literature to some Maori in their own tongue. It was Spencer's custom to carry a large umbrella. The umbrella intrigued the Maori especially when Spencer sheltered himself from the rain and the sun. When other accommodation was unavailable, the handle was placed in the ground and he slept under it for cover. " Excerpt from "St Faith's Church : Ohinemutu, Rotorua." a short history booklet of St Faiths published in 1969 and produced by Rev. Canon N.T. Te Hau. 

This book is available to read in the Don Stafford Room, on the 2nd Floor of Rotorua District Library.
