The church has a nice architecture and is a medium size church. The church was under a major renovation during our visit but visitors are still allowed to visit the interior of the church. The entrance to the car park/church compound can be quite confusing for people who drive and we managed to find the right entrance after a few rounds.

visited this whilst in Dunedin, they are in the process of doing it up, but you are allowed to go inside for a look, very lovely church.

It was very peaceful and quiet inside. The decor prob looked exactly the same when it was first built. There was only 1 large stained glass but overall I thought it was serene and peaceful and to see a piece of history of Dunedin.

The First Church is not far from the Octagon. At the time of our visit, they were renovating the church, but we could still enter. It is quite historic, and will probably be restored to its old grandor. The inside is like an oasis. If you can, walk around the gardens too.

One of Dunedin's iconic buildings. It is beautiful inside and out. If you can get in to have a look around it's even better.
