Name: St John's Church & Community Hall

Location: Arrowtown

Typology: Church & Community

St John's Presbyterian Church was built in 1873 and is the oldest stone church in the Queenstown Lakes District. Designed by Frederick Burwell the church stands on a prominent site at the entry to Arrowtown.

Over a four year period Origin Consultants Limited ( formerly Jackie Gillies & Associates ) prepared a conservation plan for St John's and drew up plans for a new Community Hall at the rear of the church. Origin oversaw the maintenance and restoration works while the community hall was being constructed.
