Lego Church

I dug up this old email of a Lego Church. The email goes like this:
How long to build it? It was about a year and a half of planning, building and photographing.

How many pieces of LEGO to build it? More than 75,000.

How big is it? About 7 feet by 5 1/2 feet by 3
0 inches.

How many lego people does it seat? 1372

How many windows? 3976

It features a balcony, a Narthex, stairs to the balcony,restrooms, coat rooms, several mosaics, a nave, a baptistery, an alter, a crucifix, a pulpit and an elaborate pipe organ.

Obviously a Protestant Church as I can't see an altar but think about the technical espect of it all. I really like the pipe organ and choir loft as well as the massive pulpit (none of those things called lecturns).

That's fab. I actually remember doing a similar thing back in the good old days of lego, except that I made a replica of parliament house.

I was once visiting a sertain in the cell of Dominican friar who, in his cell, had a lego model of Darth Vader saying Mass!
Luke Skywalker was serving.

Can't be a Catholic Church - the back pews are empty!
