Our vision is of a uniquely developed cathedral precinct with the power to impact visitors and locals alike.
The closure of the Taranaki Cathedral in January 2016 due to earthquake risk has awakened the region to its historical and cultural value.
We are raising funds for a single cathedral precinct with worship, mission, education, tourism and visitor hospitality facilities accommodated on the beautiful and historically significant site in central New Plymouth.
• Firstly to re-open the historic stone church. The vision is of an outwardly facing cathedral that welcomes people of all faiths and none to a flexible space that allows for contemporary or traditional worship, a meeting or musical performance.
• Secondly build an atrium hospitality space behind the cathedral.
• Thirdly extend Hatherly Hall across the site weaving the stories of church, war, racial divide and peaceful protest in Taranaki in to a unique visitor experience.
Understanding our past to build our future - Taranaki Cathedral Church of St Mary is the oldest stone church in New Zealand, in the heart of New Plymouth. Its stories belong to us all. Together we can play a part in its development.
