A must go to place to go to even if not religous

This is such a beautiful church and even to sit for five minutes and reflect would do wonders. It's a must see in wellington and right in the city

This Church is one of the oldest standing Churches in Wellington. The wood structure and magnificient stained glass is a true work of art. The beautiful alter and statues are magical.
