Underground churches of Coober Pedy

There are at least three, maybe more. For some reason
the St John The Baptist Serbian Orthodox Church is the largest and most elaborate: bored into a hill by volunteers using opal mining machinery, it has a high vaulted ceiling, some carved ceilings, elaborate stained glass gallery and handsome icon stand.

Saint Peter and St Paul Catholic Church, where the underground cross is formed by opals

Finally, there's the Anglican Catacomb Church, where the Cross and lectern are made from mulga wood

the cloud piercing stone spire of Annandales Hunter Ballie church. Its 56m spire was states tallest for over a century/
Architect Cryil Blacket decided to add 30ft to top so it wouldnt be the "normal" 150ft high thus giving it landmark qualities!

I was up at the coast on the weekend staying at Hardy's Bay/Killcare and drove past this new church and I have to say .... I LOVE IT! I am never a fan of modern churchs but this seems to hold it's own very well. Fantastic! Here is hoping I love St Barnaby's (Broadway) just as much when it is rebuilt.

St Patricks Cathedral, Parramatta.

I didn't get any shots of the interior as there was a mass at the time i took them.

Wow that is quite amazing. I'm not sure I hold with all this new fangled business of the congregation assembling around the sanctuary... there's something a bit fundamentalist/evangelical about mass in the round. I'm impressed to see they've installed a pipe organ. I didn't expect they would bother. It looks as though the pipes are an old organ that has been reused, it would be interesting to find out...

Wow, this is a really good thread! I love gothic (revival) cathedrals!

St. Patrick's in Melbourne is probably the most beatiful church in the entire world.
