AKL Heritage Festival: St Matthew-in-the-City: 162 years of Taonga in Auckland City.

Come along to St Matthew-in-the-City and enjoy the church that has been Taonga in Auckland City for 162 years.

We will be featuring:
- Heritage architect Peter Reed talking about the current 1905 stone building
- Organist Paul Chan performing short recitals on the rebuilt Willis Organ
- A bell ringing display (one of only 6 of its kind in New Zealand) by St Matthew's Society of Bellringers
- A heritage window self-guided tour

We will also have refreshments available for a gold coin donation to the Auckland City Mission. There are two new features from last year: a talk on heritage aspects of the building by the Church’s heritage architect Peter Reed, and refreshments. The window tour previously offered has been restructured to be more suitable to children and families.

Enter church through main doors on Hobson Street.

Performance, lecture, tours, & children's activity will be accessible to all, however, belltower will require climbing 54 spiral steps.

Visitors to the bell chamber must wear personal protective equipment, which will be provided to you.
