We had a walk up to this cathedral but it was closed so just managed to take a look through the windows and saw a lot of similarities with Coventry cathedral. The etched glass on show here was engraved by NZ born John Hutton who also did those at Coventry and the tapestry at the altar is also comparable. Sir Basil Spence was the architect of both Coventry cathedral and the new NZ parliament building so may have used seen these designs.

Didn't go inside but from the outside it look imposing. A bit scary. Probably worth a vist but wouldn't go out of my way. Only in passing.

The modern church has a mixture of both modern and classic stained glass windows with beautiful bright colors.

What a glorious place this is in all its splendor and majesty.

The beauty and peace that surrounds the inside of the cathedral is just awesome.

It's such a reflection of God and Christ and even if you are not a Christian you would appreciate the care and talent that has gone into building this glorious church and the love and maintenance that is ongoing in her.

Just to give you the scale of things; it also houses another church within the cathedral called the Lady Chapel in memory of Mary the mother of Christ Jesus.

Simply awe inspiring.
