Return to the Church

Church of the Good Shepard 2

Fifteen Years ago my wife and I where married in this Church. So we are back and it is just as beautiful as we remember, This time i was lucky enough to be able to Photograph it. The Church over looks Lake Tekapo in the South Island of New Zealand.

Church of the Good Shepherd

Situated on the shores of Lake Tekapo is the Church of the Good Shepherd, which, in 1935, was the first church built in the Mackenzie Basin. The church at Burkes Pass, St Patrick’s built in 1872 was the first church built by pioneers as a joint community effort, by Anglicans Presbyterian and Catholic settlers. Also a joint venture between Presbyterians and Anglicans, St Columba in Fairlie was built in 1879. The church at Lake Tekapo was designed by Christchurch architect R.S.D. Harman, based on sketches by a local artist, Esther Hope. The church is arguably one of the most photographed in New Zealand, and features an altar window that frames stunning views of the lake and mountains.
