Bicentennial Celebration

1820-2020

On April 23, 1820 the first company of missionaries of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions established the first Christian Mission on the Island of Oʻahu to bring the good news of Jesus to the people of Hawaiʻi.  Reverend Hiram Bingham preached “Nu Oli”- for I bring you tidings of great joy!  The church was established on the grounds of Kawaiahaʻo – which translates to “the waters of Chiefess Haʻo”.  Known as the “Mother Church” of Hawaiʻi, Kawaiahaʻo Church for 200 years stands as a testament of Christian Aloha to all!

Come join us for the many events we have planned to celebrate Kawaiahaʻo Church’s bicentennial! The Bicentennial Celebration Worship Services will be held on Sunday 4/26/2020.

Join us as we celebrate God’s blessings and works through us and in us.
