We happened to be checking out the church and were lucky enough to hear the rehaearsal for the cantata happening later that day. Four instruments and a soloist. It was beautiful. Details of when they are can be found on the churches website.

There is a geocache behind this stunning building so if you are a geocacher it is worth a visit. Great building to photograph especially on a dark day as it looks so impressive. Drive up to it as there is plenty of parking available.

This is a lovely cathedral which has Bell ringers and Choir. To hear the bells ringing on a Sunday morning is a highlight. At a cuppa after the service members of the congregation made us feel welcome.

Attended a friend's wedding here and would like to return for a quiet visit. Lovely approach and well kept grounds for a meditative rest.

Quiet, more meditative service with great choral music and organ. More reflective than literal interpretation. An inclusive view of Christianity

Beautiful historical church with stained glass windows that each tell a unique biblical story. Amazing tolling bells which are still rung every week. Very well maintained. Peaceful grounds and welcoming place to experience God's presence.

We were married here in 1994, and often visit to refresh memories and to soak in the atmosphere. A fantastic place to visit to refresh the soul, clear the mind, or just to admire a great building.

This Cathedral is located on Victoria Street and is very well kept. The interior and exterior are both exquisite so if you're looking for some good holy music or a place to stop and think, this is a good place to be.
