This is an unusual but awesome spot for private functions. The church can be set up for a variety of events. On this particular evening it was used as a fundraiser event to raise money for a Nepalese school.

Nice place to visit and gain some quiet time in the city - this is an old part of the city and easy to find because it's just along the road from Sky Tower.

Beautiful gothic church, relevant sermon if you attend and if you like church music, wonderful interspersions by professional singers and the organist is also wonderfully accomplished. The venue is used for concerts. There is adjacent paid parking during business hours.

Amazing cathedral, beautiful services and the Monsignors are so welcoming. Worth a visit, just arrive early if you are heading to the service, if not you won't get a seat.

Great worship experience in this beautiful cathedral. The service was traditional with beautiful hymns sung by the choir accompanied by a great organist.

Every second month (for years) we have attended the great concerts of St Matthews Chamber Orchestra and always enjoyed the setting, windows and acoustics of this place.

St Mathews in the City is an interesting place that is a visual treat with interesting stained glass windows and a good treat for architecture fans. I was there for the Bach Musica Rachmaninov Vespers concert and I can attest to the good acoustics inside...More

Went here for a company party, the venue was amazing and just so warm and cozy on a cold night. The venue looks amazing with a bit of mood lighting
