The last prayer

By ColleenA
Kangaroo island is steeped in history ...the Uniting Church was built in 1883 making it 136 years old. They held the final service on the 29 September and it is now up for sale.....it would make a great restaurant or home as its right on the seafront.
Many thanks for your votes comments and user awards all much appreciated

A great capture Colleen, one of my family was clergyman on Kangaroo Island, I wonder if he preached there?

A very clean cut image of this disused place of worship, Colleen.

So, you don't fancy setting up in business then?
You could call it; The tog's Retreat. (Food for thought.) Wink

It would be a wonderful place to stay. Pity Iíve just used all my money to buy an apartment in Melbourne.
We could have a whip round Colleen, it's a giving time of the year!

A church closed and put up for sale to become a restaurant... It's a funny place, this world.

Christianity in decline and Christian standards too. I am not religious but I still find this rather sad. An interesting image nevertheless.

Great location for some further use - are there enough people living on the island for a restaurant?

I agree with Leo and Phil....a terribly sad statement of the times.

I thought too that you ought to buy it and turn it into a gourmet restaurant, Colleen 🍴👍 You wanted a Christmas present, so mine would be a donation to the whip-round that Geoff's going to start up to help you get it going! 😀

Sadly the island will never grow in population Joline, itís a protected Wildlife reserve with a little farming and a few very small towns, this Church is in Penneshaw and is the largest town as itís where the ferry docks bringing tourists and supplies onto the island from Adelaide. There is also an Anglican Church in this small town and most probably the larger congregation of worshippers. The island only survives because of tourists coming to see the Wildlife. Most tourists only stay for a few days with most doing it as a day trip. The total population of the island is only 4702 people.
