Church Goes To Sea (Jul, 1937)

This kind of reminds me of the Boat Church in Ian McDonald’s excellent book Brasyl.

Church Goes To Sea

WHEN the congregation can’t go to church, the church goes to the congregation, along the Parana River in the Argentine.

This floating church, 108 feet long, has steeple, stained glass windows and altar. Built in the government’s Buenos Aires shipyard, the hull of an old vessel was transformed into a church by the Lincoln arc-weld process.

Before this floating church made its appearance, many of the church-goers of that section were unable to attend formal worship.

    Also looks like an effective way to make sure nobody sneaks out until the service is over.
