THE RESTORE CHRISTCHURCH CATHEDRAL CAMPAIGN ABOUT US…We represent the diverse community of people who support full restoration of Christchurch Cathedral. We welcome support of all people. Please join our community of volunteers and help save the cathedral. We also need funding to support our work.

The building still stands awaiting restoration by the community of people who love and respect it. The cathedral restoration campaign groups are optimistic the restoration cause will win through. We see restoration of the cathedral as essential to the recovery of the spirit and identity of our city, a historic legacy to pass on to future generations to appreciate and enjoy. Most importantly restoration would be a healing process for our earthquake wounded community. Many experts in restoration and construction from New Zealand and from overseas have offered their services and help including stonemasons, glass artisans, expert engineers, wood artisans and project management companies.

As a group we support the concept of a People’s Steeple, which would involve the community in erecting the steeple by means of a rope pulling mechanism. You can read and see more about this here and here.

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED TOO! 

JOIN US  We recently formed an incorporated society, Restore Christchurch Cathedral Group Incorporated.   Membership of the society is $10.  You can download a subscription form here.  We have charitable status so that any donations made to the society are eligible for a tax rebate.  We have kept the membership subscription modest in the hope that members will also be encouraged to make donations.

SUPPORT OUR CAMPAIGN TO SAVE THE CATHEDRAL BY VOLUNTEERING YOUR HELP – WRITE LETTERS, GIVE YOUR TIME, LOBBY…EVERY EFFORT COUNTS.

    I am one of Bishop Harper’s many great grandchildren. I live in Auckland, but have in the past visited his tomb in the cathedral several times.

    Can you please advise me where I can get further information about the present status and condition of his tomb.

    Many thanks. Yours sincerely,
    Robert Cox

    Thursday 01 August is the anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising. The uprising saw most of what remained of the war torn city dynamited by way of retribution by the German occupying forces. After these reprisals only 15% of the city’s buildings remained standing. However, the Poles have rebuilt the entire city brick by brick so that the historic centre once again lives on fully restored to its former glory. It’s the same story with Dresden and in particular its wonderful Frauenkirche which has similarly been fully restored from what had been a rubble site after allied carpet bombing of the city towards the end of the war. How is it that New Zealand cannot do the same for one iconic building – Christchurch Cathedral. I am not a Christian and have no religious interest in the building but do see it as a cultural and historic landmark which will be lost to the nation if the current plans to demolish it are carried through. Maybe this anniversary of the Warsaw uprising can be used to publicise what can be done where there is a will to salvage iconic places for future generations.

      Hi Drew,
      I am very impressed by your access to history and renderings of what used to be.

      I am involved planning a major project which seeks to tune into ancient thinking and re creating many of the things done in the past and basing it on practical dynamics. I believe the new discoveries at Durrington Walls re-inforce my views of the use of such areas for practical agricultural processes. Near to me here in Hampshire England is a henge site at Clatford and adjacent is a specially shaped field designed I believe to accommodate pigs so they could have their share of the harvest without being moved around away from the site. The pigs I believe were also used for disposal of waste of al sorts and I have seen this applied in the jungles of south America recently. I have a picture I took of a tamed peccary (a useful pet) with a pet spider monkey on its back !.

      Please get in touch
