Why a Church in Miniature?

Why a Church in Miniature...?

Maybe it's because the church represents all the big milestones in my life.
My local parish church, where I grew up is fondly remembered and holds many happy memories of happy times in childhood spent at Sunday School.
It was here I became confirmed and where I went on to learn the guitar and to make many good friends.
It is where I was married and my three children were baptized.
And it is where I said my last 'goodbyes' to my dear, much loved parents....John and Margaret.
This tiny church is being made in memory of them.

I hope you will enjoy sharing my journey in the building of
St. Margaret's and St. John's

More alterations

After deciding where to position the porch I began to think about the rest of the building and the fact that I wanted another smaller side door instead of the one which came with the kit.
The side wall again had an opening to accommodate a larger door which was right in the middle between two windows...these little side doors are seen in many churches - sometimes they led into the vestry or just into the side of the church itself...


This is one side of the church with three windows
The wall has been cladded with fibreglass stone

This is the other side where I want to add the smaller side door....Again you can see that
I have filled in where the original door was and I've moved the window into that position.instead.
