Summaryopen/close

This historic place was registered under the Historic Places Act 1980. This report includes the text from the original Proposal for Classification report considered by the NZHPT Board at the time of registration.

St Paul's Church was designed by Alfred H Hart and built 1906-7. It is Early English Gothic Revival in style and constructed of brick with limestone dressings. It appears to have been re-roofed. The interior is partly plastered and has kauri panelling elsewhere. The altar was designed by C J Mountfort. Funded by Annie Townsend, St Paul's is an Edwardian example of ecclesiastical patronage. Ms Townsend was well-known as the

daughter and sole heir of wealthy run holder George Henry Moore.

Hart, Alfred Henry

Alfred Hart was born in England in 1848 and arrived in New Zealand around 1884. He established an architectural practice in Christchurch, which undertook both domestic and commercial commissions, as well as designing St Paul's Church at Glenmark, North Canterbury.

His son, George Alfred James Hart, also became an architect and took over the practice after his father's death in 1908.
