The Timber Framer's Guild and the UK Carpenter's Fellowship

The Timber Framer's Guild And the UK Carpenters fellowship are both organizatuions founded to foster the craft of timber frame carpentry

Please have a look at the web sites.  These are some of the best Carpenters I have ever had the pleasure to work with.  I am constantly amazed at the skill of these men and women.  I can not imagine attempting this project without them.  Fortunately both the Guild and Fellowship have pledged their full support.  They are more than willing to teach and include anyone that wants to learn a bit about the ancient craft of timber framing.

Want to Help?

Ring the Cathedral office (03)366 0046  or email and leave a message of support for the plan.  Offer to help as work crew, cooking, logistics, or any other way you can help.  Donate financially too.









Bishop announces deconstruction of Cathedral.

OK...the Bishop has anounced that the Cathedral is to be deconstructed.  Have a read of the Open Letter to Christchurch and see if that decision makes sense to you.   If not, work with us...and find ways to change minds and hearts and save the Cathedral for future generations and the service of God.

Timber Framer's Guild and UK Carpenter's Fellowship pledge support


The Timber Framers Guild (Canada and US) together with the UK Carpenter's fellowship have offered their full support to this proposal and have offered to help augment the skills and resources of Canterbury.  They offer to assist by using their member's skills and efforts to prefabricate and help to assemble and raise the needed timber framed sections of the Steeple.
