Christchurch's wizard is brewing up a protest today, against the deconstruction of the city's cathedral.

The Anglican Church has confirmed it won't halt the process of bringing the building down to two or three metres, despite weeks of protest and public backlash.

The Wizard has labelled Anglican Bishop Victoria Matthews as "seriously cracked" and in a dangerous state, with no evidence she can be made safe.

At today's rally he's promising to deconstruct her, in favour of a cardboard figurine.

The protest will be held at Canterbury Museum at noon and The Wizard also promises the demolition of members of the Anglican chapter who are still backing the Bishop.
