Barry Cox decided there was a space on his land in New Zealand that needed a church. The churches he’d studied over the years while travelling in Europe were the inspiration but he combined this with his other passion, trees. Fortunately, he knew a thing about trees; his business re-locates huge mature trees with a giant ‘tree spade’, a contraption that looks a bit like a huge apple corer. With an iron framework as the base, the church took just four years to complete. At the beginning Barry built the church just for his own benefit but after his nephew asked if he could get married there Barry decided to rent out the venue for weddings.
