St Michaels Church is located at the corner of Collins Street and Russell Street, surrounded by taller modern buildings. It was built in early 1870 and the exterior wall is brick, giving the church a unique appearance. The exterior of the church left a deep impression on me. Unfortunately, the church was not open to the public on the day I went. If you want to visit the inside of the church, it is recommended that you check the opening hours in advance. I don’t know if this church is open to tourist groups.
This charming church is located on Collins Street, and it is only a short walk or a tram ride from Swanston Street. As soon as you enter this charming church, you can feel a calming feeling. There are beautiful stained glass windows, superb arcades, beautiful wooden benches and altars. At one o'clock in the afternoon on Thursday, there will be a free and intoxicating organ concert. Mingheri (a quiet place) sits on the side of St. Michael's Russell Street.
First of all, this church is a Christian church (that is, the Protestant church. After the Reformation, the Protestant Church is different from the Catholic Church, which is the old church).
Its internal feature is that the congregation seats are divided into upper and lower floors, which looks very much like a theater. There is a group of large pipe organs, which are solemn and sacred when played on Sundays.
On Collins Street, a well-known commercial street in the center of Melbourne, there is an eye-catching church that will attract the attention of passersby. It is the "St. Michael's United Church" built in 1866, also known as the "St. Michael's United Cathedral". Even if it has such a long history, it is still open for local people to come here for mass. This is Melbourne, where there is a sense of crossing between classical and modern. This is the most unique urban aesthetic here.
The largest and tallest Catholic church in the southern hemisphere, this church is mostly built of bluestone and is the most representative Gothic building in the 19th century. The church has a rich collection of handicrafts, including detailed stained glass; the ingenious woodcarving and masonry craftsmanship, all highlight the grandeur and solemnity of the Catholic Church.
