    ChristChurch Cathedral is the focal point of Cathedral Square in the heart of Christchurch. This place of Anglican worship was designed by the English architect Sir Gilbert Scott.

    The Cathedral was damaged by earthquakes on 5 December 1881, 1 September 1888 and 16 November 1901. Each time the spire was damaged. After the 1901 earthquake, the top of the tower was replaced by hardwood sheathed in copper. The Cathedral was seriously damaged by the earthquake of 22 February 2011 and is now undergoing a controversial process of deconstruction. A deconsecration ceremony was held on November 2011.
