The Anglican Church will seek clarification today on its use of insurance money paid out on the damaged ChristChurch Cathedral, to fund the cardboard cathedral.
The High Court hearing, which is set down for two days, is in response to comments from Justice Lester Chisholm during the hearing over whether the church had the right to deconstruct the cathedral.
He said that given the site specific purpose of the Church Properties Trust, it was hard to see how insurance proceeds could be used off-site.
Counsel for the Trust Jeremy Johnston argues that the transitional cathedral is necessary to maintain the same activity which was undertaken at the ChristChurch Cathedral.
He says it's about offering the cathedral congregation a temporary home.
