Very hard to see churches when they lock them during the day! But this church is different, a concrete outside, looking like stone, with high picture windows, mostly obscured from the outside. Very elegant, very prim and proper and a proud stature. The bell tower is pretty and you can see some windows from the south side.

A beautiful church and church hall at the side. I have attended several inter faith forums here and stayed for the lunch afterwards and have enjoyed all the varied topics and presentations and friendly lunches. Unfortunately attendance is dependent on seeing the newspaper advertisement so I have missed out on several. An e-mail data base of those attending or a... More

For what was once a bustling large city, Invercargill has very few large religious edifices like St. Paul's. It can be found on Dee Street. Notable featutres are the elegant wooden panelling, traditional timber pews and of course its majestic organ. It also serves as a memorial to all those who served their country during wartime. Highly recommended for a... More

Situated quietly on Dee Street, just over the street from the 'Fastest Indian' collection, St Pauls Church invites you to a place of quiet reflection. Lovely wooden panelling, wooden pews and a wonderful organ. Some stained glass windows reflect the chasing light and shadows of the outside sky - and offers a peaceful ambience from the noise and bustle of... More

St Paul's is one of many churches in Invercargill that has an absolutely stunning tribute to those who served in World War 1 & 11. This Marble War Memorial is well worth viewing just inside the doors. The church itself is also a remarkable piece of architecture and deserves viewing by anyone travelling south.

The Church is very nice and is not far from the Warehouse store and is usually open to have a look worth a stop. I was there in the week and was open. Not sure about the week-end.

We visited the exterior of this building as it was a Sunday and a church service was in progress. Marvellous period brickwork. Pick up a copy of the Invercargill Heritage Trail Leaflet to get info on this and other important City buildings
