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 robed choir, although we also have less formal worship services. (Choir breaks for school holidays).


We are open from 8:30am-7pm every day (Saturdays 6pm) to give you an opportunity to visit, sit quietly and pray, meditate or light a prayer candle. Winter closing time is 6pm.
