    St John the Baptist Anglican Church is an active Anglican church located between Alt and Bland Streets, Ashfield, a suburb of Sydney, Australia. Founded in 1840, on land donated by Elizabeth Underwood, the church building is the oldest authenticated surviving building in Ashfield, having been built at the time when subdivision increased the population density sufficiently to turn Ashfield into a town.[3] It was also the first church built along the Parramatta Road which linked the early colonial towns of Sydney and Parramatta.[4] The earliest remaining parts of the building are one of the first Sydney designs by the colonial architect Edmund Blacket, who later became renowned for his ecclesiastical architecture.[5]

    The expansive church grounds contain a cemetery dating back to 1845 that contains the remains of many notable Ashfield residents. Australia's only memorial to Australian Air Force Cadets occupies a prominent position near the entrance to the church. The St John's site has been listed on the Local Environment Plan Heritage Schedule, and the Register of the National Trust of Australia.[6]

    St John's is one of three churches, along with St Albans, Five Dock, and St Oswald's, Haberfield, which make up Christ Church Inner West, operating within the parish of Ashfield, Five Dock, and Haberfield, as part of the South Sydney Region of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney. The church has had 18 rectors, including William George Hilliard who later became the Bishop of Nelson. Andrew Katay has been rector since early 2005.[7]

    Old St. Paul's is a historic site, Wellington landmark and popular wedding and event venue in the heart of Wellington, New Zealand. The building was used as a cathedral in the Diocese of Wellington of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia between 1866-1964. It is an example of 19th-century Gothic Revival architecture adapted to colonial conditions and materials. It is at 34 Mulgrave Street, Thorndon, Wellington, New Zealand, close to the New Zealand Parliament.

    The site of the church was purchased by Bishop Selwyn in 1845 and added to by Governor Grey in 1853,[1] at which time it was on a prominent cliff top overlooking Wellington harbour.[2] Agreement to build the church was reached by 1861[2] and the Reverend Frederick Thatcher, then vicar of St. Paul's, Thorndon, was engaged as the architect.

    The foundation stone was laid by Governor Grey on 21 August 1865.[3] The building work was executed by John McLaggan and a team of eight carpenters,[4] and the church was consecrated by Bishop Abraham on 6 June 1866.[5]

    Soon after the church opened, it became apparent that it was unstable in high winds, and so the south transept, designed by Christian Julius Toxward, was added in 1868.[6] Later additions included the north transept and north-aisle extension, also by Toxward, in 1874; the moving of the chancel five metres to the east and the addition of minor north and south transepts to the design of George Fannin in 1876; the choir vestry in 1882, probably designed by Toxward; and extension of the baptistry as designed by Frederick de Jersey Clere in 1891.[6] Thatcher’s original wooden shingle roof was replaced with corrugated iron in 1895, and subsequently with Welsh slates in 1924.[7]

    In 1964 the Diocese of Wellington moved to the new St Paul's Cathedral nearby. After a significant battle to prevent its demolition, Old St. Paul's was purchased by the New Zealand Government in 1967, and subsequently restored by the Ministry of Works under the guidance of Peter Sheppard.[8]

    Old St. Paul's is now managed by Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga.[1] While no longer a parish church, it remains consecrated, and is a popular venue for weddings, funerals and other services.

    It is constructed from New Zealand native timbers, with stunning stained glass windows. The interior has been likened to the upturned hull of an Elizabethan galleon, with exposed curving rimu trusses and kauri roof sarking.
