The church was closed as were most in Invercargill, locked when I visited, but a very nice lady allowed us in and explained its history and this was very much appreciated ...thank you again.... The wooden ceilings are very beautiful, the architecture quite stunning, it reminded me of similar churches we have seen in Europe though on a smaller scale.... More

A lovely old traditional church building that offers visual delights for the discerning photographer. Gorgeous stained glass and extensive carpentry work on display. A great place for tranquil reflection.

The interior of this church is wonderful. I like that it's easy access right in the middle of town and open to people year round.

This old Anglican church is in great need of restoration. Pleasant on hte outside but poor in the inside. The best view is from the back of the church......disappointing aspect from Stae Highway One.

St. John’s is about as central as you can get. While it is technically located on Esk Street, the building is better viewed from Tay St. Rather classical in design, it is a nice building and a nicely maintained complex that is worth a walk past to see.
