Why bother?


The Anglican Church says it will review a report that claims Christ Church Cathedral can be saved.

The church’s Cathedral Project Group said today it had received the Great Christchurch Buildings Trust (GCBT) report.

The trust, headed by former MPs Jim Anderton and Philip Burdon, yesterday gave The Press an engineers’ report that it claimed showed the cathedral could be safely restored.

Acting dean Lynda Patterson said: “We will review this brief report against the considerable work already undertaken in relation to safety, heritage values, financial implications and the need to reinstate the Christchurch Anglican cathedral for the worship of God and Christian mission in the community.”

She said the Cathedral Project Group had taken the trust engineers on site several weeks ago.

It’s rooted. Spend money on Christian endeavors like helping the needy not building wasteful monuments. It is just a silly building…and not even a very good example of a small provincial city cathedral.
