Project Description

The central Christchurch congregation has spent five years and $8.5 million planning and rebuilding, following the collapse of their historic church in the February 2011 earthquake. The new building incorporates parts of the 130-year-old church that they managed to salvage and re-use, including the 1891 pipe organ, Oamaru stone columns, and timber. The church has a high roof and an exposed timber ceiling with hexagonal detailing and a large spectacular skylight in the shape of a cross.
