Timaru Herald July 16 2015 No photography inside the Church of the Good Shepherd per The Mackenzie Co-operating Parish who oversees the church.
An increase in numbers and visitors disrespecting God's house have resulted in a photo ban inside Tekapo's iconic Church of the Good Shepherd. The interdenominational church is one of the most popular scenic icons in the country with an estimated 100,000-plus visitors a year. Visitor numbers had increased by a third in the month of April. In April 2014 there were 4100 visitors and in April this year there were 6000. On average there are between 60 and 80 weddings a year.

"No need for stained glass. The clear glass chancel window allows the congregation to be inspired by the magnificent view during services"

Awesome !

Nice history/timeline!

I'm betting the BEST time is when no one is there...perhaps dawn?

Very nice, Ocker! cheers.gif

I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night

This inside view is spectacular, but I would be daydreaming looking out that window, and not be listening to the sermon.

Very nice Ock.
