Lilyfield, church

This former Uniting Church is located along Lilyfield Road, in the inner city suburb of Lilyfield. It was originally a Methodist Church an is now the home of an aged care community centre.

  1. That's a good use of the building. The architecture reminds me of one church here.

  2. God's work can always move beyond the church - even if not used for community worship any more. It is still a wonderful community gathering place that is being used. Never waste such a resource!

    1. Those pesky mobile phone towers can spoil a view.

  8. A fine re-purposing of this building. But the brickwork looks as if it is begging for a little scrub and polish to highlight the beauty of the architecture.
