Project Description

The Wesley Methodist Church is one of Wellington’s finest 19th century timber churches. It opened in March 1880 and today is the spiritual home of Wellington’s Fijian, Samoan and Tongan Methodist communities. LT McGuinness’s role was seismic strengthening and heritage restoration of the category-one rated heritage building.

Structural works included buttresses, foundation ground beams, new and reinforced piles, a steel portal frame installed in the front towers and a new roof. A new atrium was also built to connect the church to adjacent parish buildings.
