Yesterday morning I visited the Anglican Cathedral in Napier. I had not done so before. In fact, apart from attending a funeral I cannot recall being in any church in the City before today. Mind you most churches are locked against vandals these days. Although I didn’t visit it for the purpose of blogging nor, indeed, to take photos I ended up being treated as a tourist and decided to become one.
The present building was started in 1955 to replace a temporary wooden building which was erected in 1932 after the 1886 Cathedral was destroyed by the earthquake whilst communion was being served on 3rd February 1931. That had been the second church on the site.
There is more of interest in the Cathedral but I will reserve these for occasional postings in the future.
