    Tim paid my membership fee (too complicated to send US funds) We’re working on making that much easier.

    Warm regards to all

    Marcus

    PS…we reallyt should get geographical inf from folks on this form… where do you live? …. would you like to be active in the effort to save the Cathedral beyond simply becoming a member? what are your interests &/or skills? etc.

    It’s all info that’s useful and easily gathered on this membership form

    Why don’t they just put in support beams where the’re needed and tidy it up a bit and then open it back up to the public?

    Yet another lack of decision!!After so much time and huge cost ,I for one find the ongoing wrangling over this proposed rebuild quite tiring and deadening.And most likely many others as well.But maybe it’s not too late for a completely new look at the situation. While certainly the old cathedral has a lot of history,tugs at the nostalgic heartstrings of many,etc etc,it appears to most of us outside-of-Christchurch Anglican’s and indeed most of the common down to earth public,that the only real reason for it’s extremely costly and lengthy rebuild is to the benefit of the wealthy local commercial re-developers,who just want it as a customer draw card,NOT for what it really should be the spiritual centre of the community..
    With the staggering number of young families who are increasingly being deprived of so much as a sheet of corrugated iron over their heads,a place to bring up a stable family,surely our Church now MUST put it’s money where it’s mouth is and get out to do the true work of Christ-that is to minister to those increasingly at the bottom of what’s left of our society.Over $67 million,and the huge amount of administration involved would be far more faithfully put to work through groups such as Habitat for Humanity,out there where the Church of Christ (‘Christ’schurch).If the local developers are so keen to see the old cathedral site tidied up,let them buy it,do what they like with the old building,and with that money added to the $67m, ,along with the large number of able planners released from this get the families of Christchurch into warm,safe housing,out in the suburbs,where they can bring up their families in a truly Christ-based way. Let’s see Christ’s Church go forward NOT backwards into the costly nostalgic past.

    Further to the above ,two sentences weren’t quite completed.
    after ‘out where the Church of Christ (Christ’ church)’ add – ‘really matters’ released from this time wasting and onerous debate,ers’.
    and add to ‘along with the large number of able planners’add ‘released from this time wasting and onerous debate,get the families
    of Christchurch ‘ etc-
    Thanks

    Christchurch Cathedral is a disgraceful mess. Its heritage in New Zealand is irreplaceable so it should be renovated and returned to its original state, or better, whatever the cost. New Zealand has precious little history and once you destroy this icon you can’t get it back.
