Lovely bells

We didn't go in, but it was lovely wandering around the outside and listening to the bells. Even though it was a weekday morning, they were playing some beautiful music.

Whether you are Methodist or not this church is a must see. The art deco architecture is truly stunning both inside and outside. Pay attention to the detail in the lighting fixtures.
