We’ve lived down south for years now and I never knew about a gorgeous rural church among farm fields at Lovells Flat! I spotted the steeple today while we were driving, and by returning to a gravel side road we’d just passed, we were able to make it to the church. This is a Presbyterian Church, still in use.

We were so excited to find a mature Monkey Puzzle tree right near the church; it’d sprouted a couple of babies that were growing under its shelter, they’re about a metre high 🙂
“1902”. And don’t you love the hinges?
And a peek around the corner… wow!
There will be more photos to share!
And by the way, I’ve featured a church and Monkey Puzzle tree before, at Balfour in Southland. Having just gone to the post to get the link, I found that church was established in 1903. Was that a thing at the turn of the century.. the ‘must have’ for your new church?
