Kaikorai Valley Church







I couldn't get any better photo's of this church, 
I was standing on a traffic island in the
 middle of a five road intersection in a city suburb.
The streets all head uphill from here
 or straight along the bottom of the valley.

Olveston fences...

...and a gate



Olveston is an historic home which was gifted 
to the City of Dunedin by Miss Dorothy Theomin.
You can go to an interactive link here
that tells the story of the house.

A colourful nest



An oystercatchers nest with eggs.
Situated on top of a high, rocky crag.
Climbing definitely involved in finding it.

Black on brick



I think the wooden part of the fence is a later addition. 
There is a take-away shop next door.

A church for the plain

St Luke's on The Taieri


Built in the 1960's St. Luke's is an 
Anglican church for the people of The Taieri Plain.


Open during office hours, 
otherwise it is shut during the week,
 as are the other churches in town, 
because of abuse and vandalism.


Services are held twice on a Sunday and once on Wednesday.
Recently refurbished it is a comfortable, warm church.


It has an extensive library, both books and dvd's.


The tiny chapel is used for the Wednesday service


The stained glass windows are memorials to a past vicar and parishioners.


The bishop's chair, which the bishop does not sit on when he visits.
He prefers something a bit more comfortable and sturdy.


'The Crown of Thorns'
above the door as you leave. 
Made and donated by a local artist.
