St. Mark's, Green Island

St Mark's is the Anglican church 
in Green Island, Dunedin, NZ.


The tower was erected approx. two years
 ago, maybe a little more, and lights up at night and 
illuminates the crosses on four sides.


Easy access with the ramp up
 from the footpath to the glass doors.
Turn left into the church and straight ahead
 to a small hall and morning tea room.
A nice little church but closed this day.


Across the road is Peter Mann House, 
the offices of the Diocese of Dunedin. 
Peter Mann was bishop from 1976 - 1990.
Dunedin diocese covers a large portion of the
 South Island and takes in all of Otago and Southland.

  4. I really like the photo of Peter Mann House. The big glass Cross window at the front looks really great. At first I thought it was the other end of the Church.
