Religious diversity..



 Although not a church-goer myself, I am always delighted to discover a church that I haven't seen before. I especially love to see the diverse range of religions practiced and accommodated for here in Perth. While in Highgate a few days ago I came across St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church. Built in 1954/5 the bell tower below in 1974, it is the first Serbian Orthodox church in WA and as such has been placed on the State Heritage Register. The copper cupolas are very similar to those of the Greek Orthodox Church in West Perth that I showed you here.The church and gardens are beautifully looked after by it's congregation who were arriving as I took these shots. Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe...

  4. It's a gorgeous structure and very similar to the way churches are built in this area. Maybe some day you can get inside; Orthodox churches tend to be very ornate. Thanks for your comments, Grace.

  10. Up the road from me is an Orthodox church. A very pretty service but I have to say I didn't understand it.

  11. The copper is gleaming! Must be quit new . . . or someone has the unpleasant job of regularly shining it.
