Help us Restore St Peter's Church

St Peter’s Anglican Church plays a significant role in the community. The oldest Anglican stone church in the city of Christchurch, St Peter’s Anglican Church is connected with approximately a dozen community groups.

From the time that the considerable damage caused by the 2010 and 2011 Canterbury earthquakes had been assessed, the parishioners at St Peter’s were determined to maintain their 150 year plus links to the site and put the church back on Church Corner.

The refurbishment of this special church will provide St Peter’s with a historic and visible space for community activities to take place and for the congregation to meet and worship.

Restoration Target $2,460,000
Currently $2,320,000
