Visited Sunday 11th September. What a credit to the people of Wellington that they built such a great place of worship. I loved the modern feel but it still had the proportions of the old style Cathedrals. The info boards beside the sanctuary tell the...More

We didn't really expect much but the cathedral surprised with it's beautiful tranquility and history at a very human level - you can read about the many community contributors and clergy. The architecture is interesting too with a modernist style, lots of unadorned pale wood...More

This is a special place for me as my late Dad helped build it. It's a beautiful modern cathedral. I love architecture, churches especially.

After having seen the old St Pauls church which was lovely I was really disappointed with the new cathedral. It is a huge peach coloured brick building spacious inside. It doesn't have any character and feels cold and forbidding. I wouldn't go again if I...More
