Take an internal tour of the Cathedral, with narration by Heritage Professional Jenny May.

It is not safe at this stage for anyone to go inside the Cathedral due to the risk of collapse and falling materials. The drone footage has therefore been invaluable for architects, heritage professionals, engineers and contractors to view the interior and assess the damage.

i’m a wee bit worried about how much pigeon droppings are in the building and how They will affect the surrounding buildings and people when disturbed

A video and record that needed to be made for us all to view. Watching made me sad when I see what's left of the places I grew up in amongst Mum and Dad's tower-ringing family and where he had had his funeral, but it's heartening to finally see what has been recovered and what can still be conserved and reinstated in time. I also continue to sort and hold in trust what I expect will become the foundation for a new Bell Tower Museum in time. Thank you to all put this video together. For familial reasons as well as being a Cultural Heritage Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience specialist, I will continue to watch developments with great interest.

Well done Jenny. Very good record of our Cathedral. Looking forward to being able to once again enter this sacred building.

Thank you Jenny. A most informative and moving record.

This is very well done, a priceless record of where the reinstatement project is beginning. Hope to see further footage like this as the project progresses 🙂

Beautifully narrated Jenny.

Well Done Jenny.

Jenny May - this is very encouraging to realise just how much is still intact and hopefully salvageable once access is achieved. So many treasures to tell the story of our faith as any icon does!

Mould are far worse and condition of the cathedral are much worsen caused by birds and rains.

I'll be very s disappointed i they dont retrieve the lectern from that carboard monstrosity they call a cathedral

Penny Cosgrove hi Pen can you show to Mum please.

This looks like a fun thing to do in the central city on Saturday. And great to see wonderful support for the City Mission. 

Don’t forget to pop down to the Cathedral and check out our new interactive hoardings. It’s the perfect time for an angel selfie 😊

The finished product is eye-catching and informative – it really does make people stop, and look. Love your comms work.

We created an information treasure hunt for Ao Tawhiti school students on Wednesday. They had to find the answers to questions about the Cathedral’s past and present on the new hoardings. They really loved it and so did we!Image attachmentImage attachment

Yes dont mess with our war dead memorial desin around it

What's happened to the War Memorial Not liking that area without it????

These three folders may not look like much but they contain the VERY BEST Christmas present we could have asked for – the Resource Consent that Christchurch City Council has just granted us.
This consent is critical and having it granted now means we will be able to start some strengthening works as we stabilise the Cathedral – part of our drive to make the project as efficient as possible.
To say it’s a present is a bit unfair as it took an ENORMOUS amount of work to get it – a huge thank you to all involved.
