Details

Churches are all around us, but what is the story behind their architectural design? Join architectural historian Bill McKay, author of Worship: A History of New Zealand Church Design, for a talk on the fascinating history that historian Michael King called 'New Zealand's one contribution to world architecture'.

This talk is followed by an optional tour of churches from the first Selwyn Gothic revival churches through the 19th-century Battle of the Styles, to outstanding post-war modernist churches. There is an optional bus tour 11am-1.30 pm.
