  • Visited while on a cruise, beautiful church inside and out, in a nice area of Dunedin and has great windows  more »
  • A breathtaking building. Very unusual for a non-conformist church. The wide inside space is amazing. Don't miss it.  more »
  • Located in the Centre of the city, a beautiful church with a very peculiar architecture. At the entrance, it receives you very kindly a man who delivers you a prospectus which is available in several languages. It has a magnificent organ at the altar we had lucky enough to appreciate in all its glory, since we were to hear a concert.
