Soup’s Up!

Strait Gate Church 2

September 30th, 2023:

Soup’s Up! Thanks to the wonderful folk of Strait Gate Church, Light Pass, who have been raising money for the conservation of Rechner Cottage by serving soup after the 9am Sunday services. Thank you to the wonderful soup makers, and all those who purchased and enjoyed it. We hope it warmed your souls on those cold mornings through winter – your fundraising efforts are much appreciated!

The photos show Strait Gate church through the years – The original church was of stone, with a thatched roof, and the bell tower was added in 1874. The new, modernist church was built in 1961, and designed by Erik Von Schramek. It has a beautiful stained-glass window behind the altar, best viewed in the afternoon when it is illuminated by the setting sun.
