Taranaki Cathedral Church of St Mary has been the heart of the Taranaki Community since 1846. We encourage and support the work of community focused groups.
There are a number of rooms available in which to book groups or event.
The Peace Hall Complex is a hall (with stage and toilet facilities), kitchen and lounge – connected by a hallway, but able to be used separately. This is a special and historic building, designed by local architects Messenger, Griffiths and Taylor and the foundation stone was laid on 1 June 1924 by Mayor Frank Wilson. The building was erected to commemorate the termination of the Great War, 11 November 1918.
Currently the Peace Hall is Taranaki's Interim Cathedral, a dedicated space of worhip, and as such is not available for hire.
The Peace Lounge and Kitchen are still able to be hired.
The Hatherly Hall Complex is the foyer into the Cathedral (which is currently closed for eath and doubles as a hall with an adjoining kitchen. This hall is often used for refreshments after funerals.
