The original Cathedral building that we use for worship was completed almost 160 years ago. While there is on-going cyclical repainting and yearly maintenance and repair, the last major restoration works at Cathedral were carried out in the 1990s, to replace the roof. All buildings require regular repairs and maintenance, this is no different with all our places of worship.
In 2019, the AGM approved a major restoration of the Cathedral Nave, covering the plaster and painting of the external and internal walls of the main building and transepts, various repairs and electrical works. Since then, over $5,000,000 has been raised towards the restoration. In June 2021, Cathedral appointed the contractor to undertake the works, which will start in January 2022 and take up to 12 months.

SAC RESTORATION WORKS PROJECT, 2020-2022
This Project aims to repair and restore various parts of the Cathedral’s historic building that have succumbed to environmental wear and tear. The Restoration Works will involve re-plastering and re-painting of interior and exterior walls, timber carpentry, stone works, metal works, electrical works, plumbing and roof works. Its cost of $6million will be paid out from the Cathedral Heritage Fund (CHF) set up to fund this Project as well as future heritage and building works.
