I’m not in any way a regular church attendee, but churches do play an important role in the aesthetics of a village/town in Belgium. That got me thinking that it would be interesting to see who has the nicest looking/most interesting parish church. Our church is certainly a contender for the ugliest one of the bunch.

This is the church I attended and where I served Mass until I reached adulthood. It's St. James in Edison, New Jersey and it was built in 1704. The oldest headstone dates from 1680.

Same here.

What's interesting is that they used clinker, which is very rare in Berlin, to construct Gethsemane Church (1890-93). Plus, this is the place were the opposition against the GDR regime formed.

Long after the thrill of low price, lingers the bad taste of low quality..

So I guess I have the oldest one for the moment !



Build in the XIIth century, St Germain is the church where I used to go when I was a kid. I then got married there last year (this picture was on our wedding booklet), and I am a regular attendee there (my baby girl also got baptised there).

No nice photo unfortunately, as it is quite 'city enclosed', but the picture is quite accurate (just a lot of houses have been 'removed')

Cheers,

Chapelle de la Visitation, Nice. An ancient priory chapel dating from the 17th Century.

I forgot to mention that the church was used as a field hospital for British soldiers during our Revolution. When I was a kid we all used to look under the pews for bloodstains.

I may have pics here somewhere of the altar dressed for Christmas. I was back home a few years ago and took some snapshots. The parish priest came by and asked me how I was and I said "Well, I used to work there" and pointed at the altar "when Father Martin was here." The altar looked about the same.

He allowed as how Father Martin still had quite a following among the parishioners even though he'd been dead thirty years. He was a former military chaplain and a good man to know when the chips were down.
