Shows parishioners approaching the church building in centre, along a path leading from the right foreground. The house of Colonel Wakefield is at the right with a tall flagpole with flag flying, beside it. Commentary states that the harbour is to the right, but this is not visible.
Brees' text in "Pictorial Illustrations" reads: Dr Selwyn, the Bishop of New Zealand, landed at Wellington on the 12th of August. 1842, and introduced the Rev. Robert Cole, M.A., to the settlers as their future Minister, who has succeeded in securing the good will and respect of all classes of the community. After due preparation, a church was built, something after the style of the Christian model at home, and of the early English era, and which is represented in the View. The back of Colonel Wakefield's house is seen on the right of the church, with the harbour.
The church, the first Anglican St Paul's church in Wellington, was built in 1844.
