The old St. Paul’s Church is a magnificent Gothic cathedral. Most of the locals who come here are most famous for the stained glass of this church. The church is well preserved. I didn’t expect the dark windows outside to look out from the inside. But you can see the colorful sunshine!
With a history of more than one and a half centuries, the Old St. Paul’s Church said that old is not old. But for New Zealand, this young country, this church has a long history. Pure wooden structure, Gothic style.
The Old St. Paul's Church is one of New Zealand's most important historical heritage. This is a sacred building that was first laid in 1866, imitating the early Gothic architecture of the United Kingdom, and it was all built using New Zealand wood. This is an old church, and the figures on the stained glass are all parishioners and stories from the Bible. I was particularly curious about several flags hung in the church, including the Royal Navy flag, the US Marine Corps flag and the American flag stationed in Wellington during World War II. The staff explained that this is a flag with a story. Church, people will never forget them, God bless and bless them. This church is now mainly rented for weddings, concerts, memorials, or funerals. There is also a St. Paul's Cathedral in Wellington nearby. It is a relatively modern church we have seen and is known as the most vital church in the 21st century. There are more than 1,000 seats in total, and behind the altar is an abstract glass painting. Some windows stained glass paintings are also geometric patterns, which look modern and fashionable. The overall construction was completed in 1998. Now this church is a venue for national religious events, seminars, concerts and major events in New Zealand.
Stumbled upon it while walking. It is now managed by volunteers. A church with a long history. Still kept very clean. It is still used for weddings, funerals, family prayers and other activities. If you are lucky, you will meet someone playing the organ when you go in
We first visited the old church, which was the Anglican Church of New Zealand and Polynesia, and the main church in the Wellington parish. It is a typical 19th-century Gothic Renaissance building, and is in both architectural and style consistent with the colonial background of the time. This charming church is built entirely from native New Zealand wood. It has huge stained glass windows, and the sun is coming through the glass, which makes the interior look mysterious. The church roof is designed like the hull of Queen Elizabeth's large sailboat, which is turned over, simple and beautiful, and has a quaint overall feel.
