The Cathedral welcomes 2022 with new hope and joy... and a makeover! As the Nave closes this year for some much-needed repairs and restoration, join June Gwee as she takes a glimpse behind our Cathedral's historic walls and the process the walls will undergo in this one year!

The original Cathedral building we use for worship was completed almost 160 years ago.  While there is ongoing 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 for the restoration.  In June 2021, Cathedral appointed the contractor to undertake the works which started in January 2022.
