First Presbyterian Church

@Voyagevirtuel home

And just a block further down the road is the First Presbyterian Church which was designed in the Italian Romanesque style. The First Church contains over one million bricks, it was opened in 1915 at a cost of £18,181. This is one of the great examples of church architecture in NZ, the bell tower rises 32 metres above the street & draws attention to the elaborate patterns of brickwork. The brick layer is one of the lost trade crafts, yet with buildings such as First Presbyterian there is a visual reminder of the skill of brick laying metres and metres above ground in perfect order.
