St John's Lyttelton was one of the oldest Presbyterian Churches in Canterbury. The New Zealand Historic Places Trust recorded it as the oldest built in stone for that denomination. It was designed by Samuel C Farr. The church was opened in 1865. This church was part of the Sumner - Redcliffs - Lyttelton Union Parish. Most of the parish’s services were held in the newer chapel further along Winchester Street. That chapel is the only one of the four churches in Lyttelton to survive the earthquakes.
