This is an architecturally amazing gothic style working church. It has a wonderful vaulted ceiling, gargoyles and a fully restored organ. It is an RSCM affiliated church that still has a small but vibrant and dedicated choir. Well worth a visit especially on a Sunday morning for the regular 10 am service.

A warm and inviting welcome to wonder and worship awaits anyone and everyone who visits "St Peters on Willis" in Central Wellington! Situated at the head of the city's Northern-bound Motorway, here is a classic wooden architectural gem with a commanding spire, and simply gorgeous, symbolic stained glass windows glistening all around the fine native wooden interior. The Sanctuary and... More

Looking through the glass doors, this large beautiful designed building beckons and invites you in from the street. In the rush and sometimes cursory feel of life, this is a well placed oasis. After a Morning Prayer service, the priest was available to chat. What a great way to start the day!

Enjoyed the visit. Was free and the docents were very welcoming. Glad we made the time to visit it! It was a very easy walk from the town center (parliament and the supreme court building)

St Peters was once again left wide open and inviting when I visited. I really love that about most of the churches in Wellington – they remain accessible to locals and visitors alike at all times of the day. It was nice to enjoy a few moments of peace alone in this beautiful church. A really nice attraction in Wellington.

I went recently with historic places trust, I had not been before and this church is serene with much local history.

A smaller church than some others, St Peters was a nice church with a welcoming atmosphere. Located on a busy city street and close to the city centre, the church was not so small that it did not dominate the surrounds. From the outside the design is quite simple, but inside you can appreciate the lovely windows and features of... More
