Travel Pics Theme: C for Churches. St Johns, Napier

St Johns Anglican Cathedral Napier
The theme for our ‪‎travel pics this week is C for Churches.

Today, it’s St John’s Anglican Cathedral, in Napier, NZ.

Unlike many of the churches in this series, this one isn’t ancient – in fact, it’s hardly even historic. It was built in the art deco style – as befits a church which replaces one destroyed by the 1931 Hawkes Bay earthquake. (For a discussion of Napier, and its Art Deco heritage, see my earlier blog-post …)

 

Oh – and’s full and formal name?

The Waiapu Cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist, Napier. Now there’s a mouthful!
