Christ Church Ellerslie is a fine example of the European Gothic church architecture of 1880s Auckland. It has the added significance of accommodating an important and stunningly beautiful set of Clayton and Bell stained & painted glass windows, dating from 1885 and gifted to the Church.

For 10 years, Salmond Reed Architects has worked closely with the Parish of Ellerslie, firstly with the upgrading of the Parish Hall then remedial works to the historic vicarage. In 2016, Salmond Reed embarked on a detailed programme of reporting, detailing and specifying sympathetic and crafts-based remedial works to both the timber building and the stained and painted windows. Of particular interest for their rarity value was the conservation repair carried out on the stained and painted windows. Work to the building included repairs to the bell tower and the return to exterior colours assimilating those of the original decorative scheme.
