First Church, Dunedin, Otago centennial stamp

The ‘mother church’ of Presbyterians in New Zealand is the church founded by the Scottish settlers of Dunedin in 1848. The present building, opened in 1873, designed by Scottish-born architect R. A. Lawson, is considered a masterpiece of the adaptation of Gothic style to the requirements of Presbyterian worship.
