Haere mai Piki Mai
Welcome to your Nelson Cathedral, a living church and place of worship and prayer and enjoying a reputation for musical excellence.
Christ Church Cathedral (Nelson Anglican Cathedral) is the principal church of the Diocese of Nelson, New Zealand.
The Maori name for the hill on which the Cathedral stands is Piki Mai, which means "come up hither".
Our worship follows traditional Anglican patterns with organ and regular robed choir, although we also have less formal worship services.
We are open from 8:30am-7pm every day to give you an opportunity to visit, sit quietly and pray, meditate or light a prayer candle. There is no entry fee. Winter closing time is 6pm.
