The Church of St James, Waiau

I'm not sure how Hubby finds little places like this--he must have some church-spidy sense or something--but this church was a surprise stop. We were just driving along and crossed a bridge when he pulled onto the soft shoulder. I thought it was to let traffic behind us pass, but he pointed to a small sign a short distance ahead that said 'St. James Church' with an arrow pointing into the trees.



Its simplicity is its beauty.

An unusual looking Church from the outside with the black strips. The Black & White on the inside looks really simple but beautiful & that sign gave me a good laugh.
