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... More

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... More

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 history of Wellington Cathedral - very interesting.

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 and pastel colours. Overall a pleasant place to spend an hour or so taking in... More

Wandered round the cathedral while we were waiting for the 10am service. It is a very interesting building and has wonderful stained glass windows. What mattered to me most was the very touching & spiritual service with very warm people there. The choir was very good and altogether a wonderful visit.

Nothing like a European cathedral apart from the size, but it's still great. I would classify it as understated, which adds to its appeal.
