Stamford Hill, London – 2. Different religious places

This is a big mix of religious groups here – different from what you think, and it gets more interesting later on.

Got to love Vegans eh? some of these (but not all – erm, phew!) folks are on such an extreme obsessed, focused mission, they are practically a religion, this person has it as business on their car, maybe the two others (one is a Toyota IQ, the others are a Smart) are part of the same effort.

This is a Catholic church now used as a Mosque. This might make a number of people including myself sad, except on the left, they missed something! – Or, maybe its a listed building and they are prohibited from removing the original decorative pieces. Islam usually has a habit of trying to make its structures and symbols the largest and tallest. But here the cross is higher!!

This is another Catholic church, this one active on the outskirts of the main road of Stamford Hill. I like the look of this place as the message of the scripture here of Isaiah 2:4 “They will hammer their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into sickles.” Underneath is a message to stop youth carrying knives. They also do a service in Polish and Spanish.

The centre of Stamford Hill also has a Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall. This group might appear to be Christian, but they follow an earn your way to salvation, rather than the finished works of the cross, as their members are very busy knocking on doors of the public to spread a well intentioned but not genuine gospel message.

This is a little hard to see, but there is a message of “Jesus is Lord” on this building’s front. I like the sound of this place the most.

A bit further on, I will visit the strict Hassidic Jewish community, a bit later.
