Church Overview

The parish was founded in 1865 and the present modern church was built in 1965. A stunning modern church with dramatic use of light, this is one of only four Gillespie, Kidd & Coia churches with all its original features intact. The principal designers were Isi Metzstien and Andy MacMillan. Showing the influence of le Corbusier, in particular, his chapel at Ronchamps in eastern France, the church is a large-scale box surmounted by a clerestory and with a curving profile to the roof. The use of red brick is a feature of churches designed by Metzstien and MacMillan; each building is made of bricks as the Church is made up of its members. The building is on a epic scale; the wide span possible by the use of steel beams to support the roof. Light enters the large, spacious interior by the clerestory windows, the huge window of the west wall and carefully placed roof lights.
