Knox Church from the inside

There have been many images of Knox Church, Christchurch from the outside – most if not all visual media companies have stationed themselves in front of the damaged building simply because it has been as close as they can get to the city centre.  Rev Dr John Roxburgh of Dunedin has taken this photo from the inside – his article about visiting Knox can be read at the excellent Presbyterian Archives blog: http://preshist.wordpress.com/2011/05/10/knox-church-congregation-return-to-their-church-building-for-worship/


Until today I hadn’t seen what the church looked like inside… the picture is sobering and stunning.  As I understand it, the church is soon to be braced and boarded up until a decision is made on its future.
