Nurses' Memorial Chapel

New Zealand’s first purpose-built hospital chapel is of vital cultural importance: it is the only memorial chapel celebrating nurses who died in any conflict and the 1918 Influenza epidemic. Many stories and treasures lie within, displayed in Arts & Crafts details and works of craftsmanship. Highlights include stained-glass windows by renowned artist Veronica Whall, and the elaborately carved altar and oak panel by Frederick Gurnsey and Jake Vivian. A riot of colour by way of the aisle carpet, running straight up the middle, adds to the visual delight.

Opening Hours: Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday 1pm - 4pm

No parking; publicly accessible restroom; wheelchair/walking aid/pram accessible

Collins and Harman, 1927
