Great to stroll to if you are in Dunedin. A nice place to relax and read a book. Can't really go in but the grounds are free to public.

This is a most impressive church - typical 19th century architecture: the tower shows up to heaven, valueing highly GOD ...

I wasn't sure that there were any good examples of Christian architecture in new Zealand, but a visit to the First Church certainly dispelled any such thoughts, The exterior proportions were as good as any in Europe, and the interior space well designed. the roof structure was pretty amazing and the positioning of the main stain glass windows a highlight....

Easy to see why this church is regarded as the most impressive of New Zealand's nineteenth-century churches- absolutely loved visiting this church- great architecture and history. Worth a visit.

The view is amazing and peaceful with a garden in front of the church. The church is small yet very pretty

When you think about how and when this church was built. What a great building just all the detail that has gone into this church.
