Local Church gets yarn bombed.

This down town Brunswick Church shows how to welcome and encourage people in all the right ways.  This display makes people feel good. I saw people smiling and taking photos.
A bright and open Church without a fence around it.

welcoming entrance.

Brightly decorated poles.

A chair for people to sit in whether they are visiting the church or not.






Flowers and  something to make you smile.


A side fence that smiles back.



Footpaths that add colour an warmth.

Purple. Purl. Knit. Crochet. Trees cared for.

and finally a place to pop a small prayer in.
I wonder what was written on the note ?

What would you write?

  1. Ooh I’m beset by the sudden urge to visit! What a glorious combination of colour and warmth…very welcoming indeed.


  2. What an amazing experience to see this in-person. I can’t imagine this happening in a local church here, even though we do have our fair share of dedicated yarn-bombers! I would have to write on that sheet of paper about the excellent choice of patterns/colors that those ‘bombers chose. After all, they did have to show much dedication to make this outdoor environment surrounding the church look this beautiful, right? Another lovely post, gentlestitches!


  3. I didn’t actually but now that you mention it I might leave a little bloom next time I am passing.
    It is an amazing sight. I only photographed half of it.
    Thanks for commenting. : )


  4. I’m not religious, but I think this is a really cool looking church. They way they appear outwardly, in this positive way, probably says a lot about how they approach their faith and welcome new people to join. A nice find, Gentle Stitches. 🙂


  5. Beautiful! I love it 🙂 And that definitely looks like a fun and welcoming place because of it all. : ) thanks for sharing this 🙂


  6. I’d write on the note “Thank you Lord for thinkin’ ’bout me, I’m alive and doing fine! Woo!”

    If you’re not familiar with the song “Signs”, you won’t get that little joke! 🙂

    Very pretty! Much better than most of the stuffy looking churches I’ve seen!


talk to me people!
