|Three churches in Manapouri. Former Otautau Anglican Church on the left.|
Otautau had four thriving churches in the past - the Presbyterian, Methodist, Anglican and Catholic. Three of these historic buildings remain, but one was removed several years ago and has a new life as an arts and crafts shop in Manapouri.

St Andrew's Anglican Church was on Alderly Street, behind what is now the district council building. It was built in 1905 by Joseph Swap (1856-1908) - a carpenter from Aberdeen who built many of Otautau's homes and businesses.
