Bishop Victoria Matthews says the Anglican Church has always believed Christ Church Cathedral could be rebuilt, but the cost would be excessive.
The Cathedral Project Group has been considering an alternative engineers' report that says the ruins of the church are safe for workers to restore.
But the group stands by its decision that it is simply too dangerous, and too expensive, to repair the huge stone building.
Bishop Matthews told Morning Report her stance has always been the cathedral could be restored if the church was prepared to spend any amount of money.
