    It is located in Central Wellington and it is a diverse and welcoming Catholic Church. It is a beautiful iconic architectural building.

    I am not a fan of the modernist exterior, which is very average. However, do stop and go inside to see the interesting interior and unusual works of art. Don't miss the wooden chapel on the left of the altar.

    I attended an open day at St. Gerard's Monastery recently. The Redemptorist Monks and brothers left this building in 1988. Two private firms were interested in buying the building but those sales fell through for different reasons. Now it belongs to a Catholic Missionary Society and these people showed us the church, the stained glass windows and also the adjoining building. This building has a smaller chapel, dining room, kitchen and library. There is also a private lawn with a splendid outlook to the city and Wellington Harbour.

    We were staying on the Terrace and found this Church amongst the many buildings that line this street. It was having it's Sunday service when we arrived and therefore did not disturb the masses to go look inside. The outside is in good condition and has obviously undergone some work in recent times. Glad to see the building is being kept in great condition.

    We received warm greetings by the vicar when we arrived. He kindly shared his knowledge with us about this church and its rich history. This is a very beautiful and pristine church. Being one of the oldest church in Wellington area this church was built in 1848 and it still has the original old bell. It is worth a visit.

    This nice church was next door to my hotel on my recent trip to Wellington. Sadly for the most part it was closed. I managed a quite sneak around inside during a Sunday morning mass, and the church is beautiful, but access is not as open as some other churches in Wellington. Still, a fantastic classical church and an interesting attraction in central Wellington.

    Not sure where Tripadvisor's photo is from, but it's not 68 Webb St! The Russian Orthodox Church in Webb St is a large square brick building, quite attractive but nothing like the photo. You can only view it from the street, it was turned into flats at least 15 years ago.

    Found this on trip advisor during a vacation in New Zealand, and gave it a go...half way around the home from home (California Bay Area). Come to find out, there's a sister center called the SF Buddhist Center within walking distance from my job. Meditation for an hour then teaching for the next hour. Everyone was so nice. Must do for anyone who meditates.

    This was afar more humble and down to earth , probably reflecting the nature of the Methodist church. Had seen Saint Gerard on the top of the hill and it was a very imposing structure. Saw the Wesley Church from a distance and it stood out for its more discrete approach.

    Father John got me to church and that in itself was amazing. I really enjoyed the service, felt at peace and in harmony. I may even return
