Welcome – Haremai Pikimai
Christ Church Cathedral, Nelson, is the principal church of the Diocese of Nelson.
It serves the needs of Cathedral parishioners as well as the wider church, the diocese and the city.
The Maori name for the hill on which the Cathedral stands is Pikimai, which means “come up hither”.
Our worship follows traditional Anglican patterns, although we also have less formal worship services.
