Good Shepherd's Church Located on the shores of the beautiful Lake Tekapo in New Zealand, the back is a vast landscape, and many newcomers choose to have a wedding here. Although the church is very small and the area is only 20 or 30 square meters, the facilities are very good.

It is praised by the pioneers of the Mackenzie area to remember them. Great achievements. The most special feature of the
church is that it is completely built of rock, and the panoramic view of the Southern Alps is seen from the window of the church altar.
This is also a good place to watch the stars. When the night falls, the long guns and short guns are waiting, everyone wants to capture the stars in the background of the church. However, due to the fact that there are cars entering from time to time, the direct shooting of the high beam lights has repeatedly destroyed the shooting results, and the complaints from time to time have become the norm.
Compared to the night, I prefer the church during the day, solemn and quiet.

The stone remains intact, without any processing, and retains the moss above, so that the church has just been built and looks like it has been for decades. Even if the visitors outside the church door are woven, noisy, but when you step into the church, you will feel the whole world is quiet, through the frame-like window, look at the Tekapo Lake in front of you, listen to the sound of the wind.
