St. Johns Lutheran Church..



While chatting over lunch yesterday with mon ami français Marie I mentioned that on my travels I often come across lovely old churches in the most unexpected places, many surrounded on all sides by residential, business and other modern premises.. 'Ah oui' says she 'but remember how different their surroundings would have been when they were originally built' :) One such church in Northbridge surrounded by Central TAFE buildings is St. Johns Lutheran Church, the exterior walls built using stone from the Darlington quarries in the Perth hills. The door was open, next time I will go in! Hope your week has started well, happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..
