Elim Church

Just about every little town in New Zealand has or had a pub on the high (main) street. If the town had a crossroads, then it was on the corner and is generally 2 stories high. As we drove through Marton, I was taking a drive-by photo of the dates of this building when Hubby started laughing. He pointed to what was once the pub and said, 'It's been taken over by a church!' I guess any building can be a church meeting place.

Yes, a lot of the Pentecostal churches seem to take over other buildings, shops etc, and good on them. Better than letting them go to rot.

...well Jesus said that "wherever a few of you gather together and think of me, that will be your church." He preferred hillsides and trees Himself!

I just love that such wonderful architecture continues to serve, rather being left or demolished. YAM xx
