Our vision :  . . .
Our aim is to provide a peaceful and quiet place to which anyone may come, away from the stress and strain of daily life, to rest and to seek physical, emotional and spiritual renewal.

Our desire is for all who stay at Te Waiora to feel loved and cared for; to experience the peaceful countryside, the beauty of the garden and the mountains - and to leave feeling rested and refreshed; above all, to meet with our God.

Then Jesus said,   'Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.'    Matthew 11: 28-30

Te Waiora  - means living water

In a conversation, Jesus said:
'If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.'          John 4: 10
