Holy Trinity Cathedral - Review
The Holy Trinity Cathedral was built in the late 20th century in Neo-Gothic style. The Nave of the church (a contemporary addition), is designed by N.Z. Architect Professor Richard (Dick) and dedicated to the ‘the Holy Trinity’.
The highlight of the church remains in its architecture – especially the Glass doorsthat seem to be suspended due to its lack of visible support. The acoustics steal the show and if you can see a live performance here, do make it a point to visit the church.

Holy Trinity Cathedral, Auckland Reviews
So many special and beautiful places and spaces to draw aside and find God. A truly spiritual space.
Caught a taxi to attend 5 pm Evensong on 15/4/2017 as advertised on the website and signage ---only to find a group of worshippers gathered around a closed and darkened cathedral ---Mighty slack and most unimpressive from a cathedral church . Let's hope that the Parish churches have a better administration. I'm sure that the Pentecostal churches with hundreds attending!! -Lift your game Cathedral!.
What a complex Cathedral church. Concerts here are among the best church music events in Auckland but aren't widely advertised in city promotion material. The mix of old and new architecture is somewhat odd like an unplanned marriage. The newly built Selwyn chapel has a gold leaf ceiling that makes it an attractive function centre. The new Cathedral organ, substantially funded by Auckland ratepayers, is now considered the finest in NZ. It's impressive and declamatory. The stained glass is the most ambitious 20th century glass art in any Auckland building but much compromised by the low roof on each side of the nave. The Cathedral would not give access to St Mary's when I visited. Why? Is this because St Mary's is a much more important building than the 20th century structure placed next to it after a hugely controversial shift from its original location across the street. We waited to get entry. Will the Cathedral know it's cool to provide access to Auckland's pre eminent Gothic timber building?
Every time I come here I can't stop looking at how beautiful it is Glad to come here to witness my friends wedding
Architecturally stunning. So much thought has gone into its design as a modern worship space.
