Skywatch @ Friday: Church of the Good Shepherd

There is an Oxford and Cambridge in the North Island Of New Zealand. Oxford was named after Oxford, the English town. But confusion led to the change to Oxford North and then in 1895 it took the name of a prominent hill in the area, Tirau.

The church has a big corrogated statue of a shepherd. Further down the church at the northern end of town is the Tirau i-SITE Visitor Centre (The big dog), with it's decorated walls and lead light window. Alongside is the Big Sheep Wool Gallery. Both dog and sheep are made of the same material.

That is a very nice looking church. It looks great against the blue sky.

Thank you Ann for showing this church! And thanks for your comment too. I have been busy receiving guests and going away myself. It's really holiday time.
