Scots Presbyterian Church, Fremantle by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Scots Presbyterian Church is a Presbyterian church located at 90 South Terrace, on the corner of Norfolk and Parry Streets, in Fremantle, Western Australia.[1] It was the first Presbyterian Church built in Fremantle and one of only six to decline amalgamation with the Uniting Church.

The Fremantle City Council approved plans for Scots Presbyterian Church at a special meeting in March 1890, and on 26 March 1890, the foundation stone was laid by John Forrest. The architect for the building was Talbot Hobbs, the building contractor was Messrs. J. Petrie and Company, with internal decorative painting carried out by E. Bockelmann. The building was completed at a cost of £2,000 and officially opened on 26 November 1890.

Gaslight was introduced in 1902 and replaced with electric light in 1905. The church was re-roofed at a cost of £150 in 1911, and in 1975 the Church was awarded a A$15,000 National Estate grant for repairs to brickwork and wiring. In 1985 a wall around the church was constructed, with a rear shed added on in 1994.

This photo is taken from the rear and highlights how the church today is very much a part of the life of Fremantle, with the Fremantle Markets next door.

La Congregation du Saint-Esprit — Sanctuary - PARIS-2018-77 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

On our Paris Charms & Secrets electric bike tour of Paris we visited a very interesting church which Eric described as being the oldest in Paris. I believe it was the La Congregation du Saint-Esprit but I am not 100% sure.

It was interesting trying to shoot inside the dimly lit church hand-held with an F4.0-5.6 lens.
