ChristChurch Cathedral to be reinstated

On Saturday 9 September 2017 the Anglican Diocese of Christchurch voted to accept an offer of support from the Government, with support from Christchurch City Council and the Great Christchurch Buildings Trust, to reinstate ChristChurch Cathedral.

The Synod considered three options: Reinstatement, rebuilding a new Cathedral on the site or gifting the land and building to the people of Christchurch and New Zealand.

The issue was discussed in detail at Synod before an early afternoon vote on Saturday saw the option to reinstate carried. Information on the next steps will be released shortly.
