A central Invercargill church is set to receive a $14 million-$15 million injection of funds from its new owner — the Southern Institute of Technology.

St John’s Anglican Church, hall and grounds between Tay and Esk Sts will become part of a larger "Creative Centre", and will include co-working areas for graduates and postgraduate students.  The decision, announced yesterday, was agreed by the SIT council at a meeting on Monday night. Council chairman Peter Heenan confirmed it would fund the centre from its reserves.
