Pitt St Parish, Uniting Church, Sydney.
There are so many little churches scattered through the inner city; and all of them still working, it seems. This one has many faces, I think. It's open at intervals during the day for people come in for quiet prayer. On Sundays it's an active parish. In the evenings, it hosts community groups - I've been to a few meetings with the Amnesty International group that operates in its kitchen. And at night, as you can see, its doorway is a handy alcove for bums to sleep in. Sometimes the people coming in have to step over them, or use the side door.
