Long Description:
St. John's Anglican Church is the senior Anglican Church in Ivercargill with its first timber church built in 1861. With an expanding congregation the church engaged architects Mackenzie and Gilbertson to design a church. This building constructed on the site of the previous church was only partially completed in 1887 but served the congregation until the church engaged the services of architect E.R. Wilson to expand the church further which was completed in 1913. The brick church is in a Gothic Revival style. In 1976 the church was further expanded when the narthex or entry porch was added. The church building is in very good condition and continues to serve its congregation.

The church is listed as a Category I building on the Heritage Register.
