Southminster

I also paid a return visit to Southminster United Church for Doors Open.







A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme for July 1st is Upside Down.

  1. What a charming small church. The windows are beautiful.
    I think it must be lovely to sit in there for awhile.

    cheers, parsnip

  8. @Parsnip: well, it's not that small, but certainly on a different scale than a basilica.

    @VP: it is!

    @Marleen: I was quite pleased by how the stained glass windows turned out.

    @Tamago: I have a couple of ideas, one of which involves flipping a couple of shots I took earlier in the month.

    @Beatrice: they certainly are.

    @Tex: most definitely!

    @Sharon: so do I. It's a frequent photographic opportunity for me.

    @Jan: it's quite an entrance!

  10. Makes me wonder who decided on the colors and why. The work well with the structure, I think.

  12. Lovely church! Miss the tulips though!

  13. This is very ornate inside but rather dark.

  14. It's a gorgeous building. If I understand correctly (and I might not) the "United Church" is protestant but not Anglican, correct?

  15. @Janis: thank you!

    @Revrunner: the glass in here is rather different from other churches, but I like it.

    @Jose: I quite agree!

    @Linda: with summer on us, it was time to change that.

    @Cheryl: I know, but I'm seasonal where header images are concerned.

    @Red: I chose to turn off the flash for all but the plaque shot. I wanted the emphasis on the windows, so the sanctuary ends up feeling a bit darker than it actually is.

    @RedPat: thank you!

    @Lowell: yes, it goes back to the 1920s- the Methodists, Congregationalists, and a number of Presbyterian churches came under one banner in Canada. The United Church of Canada is indeed Protestant.

  27. It's interesting how many people do stained glass work as a craft, hobby or artisan!
