The “Tree Church” is a living, breathing structure designed and built by Barry Cox to be a place of interest and contemplation.

Set in three acres of distinctive gardens in New Zealand, the church was inspired by Barry’s love of architecture, particularly the design and construction of churches.

Although initially created as a private garden, Barry was persuaded to open the gardens to the public in 2015.

Barry describes the Tree Church as a “welcomed retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life”.

The gardens, and in particular the Labyrinth Walk, were designed as a calm environment.
