About Christ Church Cathedral, Nelson

The Anglican Church looms over Nelson from the top of the hill in the middle of the city. It was finished in 1965. I’s unusual colour comes from the marble that went into it’s making, from Pakikiruna near Takaka Hill. It’s not large, not is it particularly grand; rather, it’s beaut lies in the serenity it imparts to every visitor. Visit during the service, and you’ll find the choir to be most soothing. The architecture is a mix of traditional and contemporary. Not the stain glass windows too. Another feature rather surprising to find here is the labyrinth. If you want to go through this place, the staff s generally very helpful and informative.

Christ Church Cathedral, Nelson Reviews

  • Christ Church Cathedral, not to be confused with the cathedral of the same name in Christchurch, is an amazingly beautiful building which gives off such a deep feeling of peace. Love this place!

  • Nelson's iconic cathedral. Centrally located in the hill near the main street of Nelson City.

  • A special church on a hill, the tower with bell you can see it from far. The manager is very friendly and is happy to tell about "his" church.

  • Really pretty cathedral with some nice stain glass windows. Overlooks the main street in Nelson.

  • Nice palace such large Church!
