Helene has sent in pictures of a church in Kaleen and wants to know more:

Just wondering if anybody knows anything about this amazing church building in Georgina St, Kaleen?

Anyone?

Do they have scheduled public executions?

Jesus, that’s a bloody horrid eyesore.

It looks like it’s made out of almond paste and gingerbread.

Your looking at the Mosque on Maribyrnong Ave.

It is a Coptic Orthodox church, not a mosque. Hint… see the cross on top?

Meh, I don’t do religion, I got told it was a Mosque, I can of course tell you the difference between a Cortina and Escort at 2km’s, just not buildings.

Yes, it’s been there since I was a wee lass – at least 15 years IIRC. Never been inside but I’ve always admired the lovely coloured glass and the bell towers.

That’s a fantastic looking building. So nice to see a building that isn’t just glass and steel.

Ahh, caught out by a lack of Kaleen knowledge.

*this* building certainly isn’t on street view:

No Johnboy, that is a different orthodox church (Coptic). It isn’t quite in Georgina Crescent, but on Maribyrnong Crescent. They are about 200m apart.

Psst, JB I just looked at it, it’s there.

New??

I worked at Supabarn 10 years ago and it was an old structure then.

Have a look at the the corner of Rubicon Street and Georgine Crescent, definitely a nice big church there.

BTW Helen needs to learn how to drive Google Streetview. It is certainly there.
Further, the church is at least ten years old, certainly since before Streetview arrived.
What has happened recently has been some additional building activity, on the left of the driveway as you look at it from Georgina Crescent. I had always coveted the stack of terracotta tiles that you can see in the streetview image next to the driveway but now they are gone.

I hope it doesn’t interfere with our caucasian way of life. Oh, and the parking, yeah, almost forgot the parking.

Skidbladnir 3:18 pm 10 Jul 12

I can tell you its Orthodox just by looking at it.
And according to Flickr its All Saints Orthodox.

(Also, its not new.)
