Te Kaihanga o Ngā Whetū

In July 2021, Atomic Church were blessed and honoured to host the first ever Christian kapa haka festival at Matariki "Te Kaihanga o Ngā Whetū" honouring Jesus.

Marking Matariki celebrations and held at Te Puia in Rotorua, this event brought together church kapahaka groups from  all around the motu.

When God spoke to Pastor Matai Bennett about young men having visions once old men have dreams, the idea of a national whakangahau dropped in his heart in order to glorify God through the Maori culture. 

Churches from all over New Zeeland came to participate in this kapahaka event. 

Keep an eye out for dates in July 2022 for the nextwhakangahau event.
