St David’s was built as the Soldiers’ Memorial Church “to keep green the faith and courage and sacrifice” of those who gave their lives in WWI (The Story of St David’s Presbyterian Church 1864 – 1964 p.60). Crafted out of Oamaru Stone and Kamo Brick to the designs of Daniel Patterson and later Horace Massey, for nearly a century St David’s has served city and country, affectionately referred to as the Cathedral of the Presbyterian Church.
St David’s captures the Scottish spirit of Aotearoa New Zealand. Its handsome yet unostentatious exterior belies the light-filled, warm and generous experience within. Designed with ramp access and listening posts for returned servicemen with physical impairments, St David’s has always been an inclusive, inspiring place for all.
