The Dean's Message
Welcome to the Christchurch Transitional Cathedral.
The Transitional Cathedral is a beautiful place to come and visit, so please come on in. Built to the glory of God the quiet simplicity draws people to peace and to prayer and to contemplate the depths of God. When you are inside and look back outside through the wide open doors, the beautiful park setting of Latimer Square is fully in view. Whether you are a visitor, a pilgrim searching for God, or needing a place to pray, the door is open and you are welcome.

Public Notice: The Cathedral Columbarium
To protect the Cathedral Columbarium during the Christ Church Cathedral Reinstatement Project, the Columbarium needs
to be deconstructed, stored safely and re-built at a later date. The Cathedral Chapter wishes to advise families who have loved ones’ ashes interred in the Columbarium, that the ashes will be respectfully removed with appropriate prayers and placed in secure storage at the Transitional Cathedral in September. Families will be welcome to visit the Transitional Cathedral, once the ashes have been moved.
