The Rose Historic Chapel formerly St Mary’s Convent Chapel is the sole survivor of a group of heritage buildings in Christchurch that once comprised the St Mary’s Convent complex for the Sisters of Mercy in North Colombo Street.
Built in 1910, the chapel is a small, symmetrical early English Gothic-styled building constructed in Hoon Hay and Oamaru stone. The builders have clearly articulated the internal functions of the chapel - that is the entrance porch, choir loft, nave and sanctuary - by using different roof levels and a geometric tracery window and rose wheel window at the east and west ends respectively. The chapel’s new name was derived from the prominent west end rose wheel.

An absolutely superb ceremony venue which I highly recommend. The chapel is gorgeous as is the surrounding gardens..great for photos inside and out! Even though it is on Colombo Street you would never know! Lovely loos for waiting guests and everyone involved with the hireage and viewing of the chapel responded quickly to questions and queries and were very accommodating.
We had a fantastic ceremony at the Chapel and I have no hesitation in recommending it.venue
