Brisbane's CBD is full of beautiful churches. A few months ago I posted a picture of a gorgeous stone angel that I photographed at the Cathedral of St Stephen on Elizabeth Street.
This week I was walking past the Ann Street Presbyterian Church and noticed a sign saying that it was open for visitors every Thursday from 10am to 3pm. It was Thursday, I had 15 minutes to spare, so in I went.
As befits its Presbyterian principles, this church is far more modest than St Stephen's, with less ornate features and a smaller congregational space.
But its wooden ceilings had me craning my neck to admire their intricate joinery, and its simple stained-glass windows had their own charm. Plus the organ up the front was a beauty.
Built in the 1850s, the church is one of Brisbane's oldest. It's definitely worth a little visit if you happen to be passing by on a Thursday.
