    Default Scandinavian Seamen's Church, Park Lane

    A few pics. I was chatting to Rev Lars Frisk and not only is he the Seamen's Pastor, he's also the Swedish Honorary Vice

    Consul. I asked him if that was a bit like being a Pope

    ...did you get any idea how big the congregation is bluenose? Be interesting to know if there's a regular mob or if it's just passing trade as it were..

    Are the services actually in Swedish? How long's he been here do you know?

    There's a German church at the back of Catherine St.

    Don't know whether the services are in Swedish, but all the staff/volunteers are Swedes, as well as the hymn bewks.

    .......a week ago I was quite convinced we'd win tomorrow. Without Sissoko I just can't see it. Hope I'm wrong like.

    Everyone's half expecting Carragher to fill the holding midfield, but I reckon Aurelio might be amore effective..I'm sure he played a second half in earlier in the CL covering that role and looked pretty mobile..

    Anyway back to topic, good work with the pics..

    Thanks Teardrop. Gutted about Momo. He's had some bad luck, that lad. I thought his career was ended after that eye injury. Cracking player.

    Just noticed that the sculpture(?) in the first pic is similar to Arthur Dooley's Christ Risen which is in Paddy's Wigwam.

    The church is to close by the end of the year, sad news indeed.
