The path from banking and law to being a vicar is a well-worn path at St Paul’s! In 1908 the Rev Cecil Watson took over the helm, having worked for the BNZ before training at St John’s College. He was also a photographer and artist who used a primitive printing press to produce “The St Paul’s Press” each month. Watson worked tirelessly towards the beautification of the church, commissioning much of the stained glass.
