St. Paul's has remained almost unchanged in over one hundred years. In 1973 a stained glass window was gifted by Mrs Sally Lusk as a memorial to her late husband. The window in a modern theme depicting the trees, hills and valleys of the area and the gold from which the town sprang, blends with, and complements the Victorian architecture of the building. A further stained glass window was consecrated in 1992. It was gifted by members of the Romans family as a memorial to George Hemy and Maiy Elizabeth Romans who worshipped at St. Paul's for many years. George Romans when he died at the age of 102 was still serving as Church Warden. The concept of the window centres around the annual renewal of creation from winter through spring and summer to autumn. The lines through the design from top to bottom symbolise the sin's rays which bring life to, nature and more importantly indicate God's light illuminating the creation. In 2012, St Paul's Church and the Cottage next door were designated as Category 1 buildings by the NZ Historic Places Trust. St Paul's is the oldest Church in continuous use in Arrowtown. St. Paul's, which seats approx 90 and now well into its second century of service, continues to meet the needs of an expanding population. Now, as it has done over a long period, the church provides comfort, security and a St Paul's community of interest based on Christian beliefs.
