Mundane Mondays: St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, Greenwich, CT

St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Greenwich is a picturesque, eclectic modern church. The prize-winning design was the vision of local architect Philip Ives and was constructed in 1958 on donated land.

The building materials vary from wood to stone to colored glass, all warm in tone and organized in a way to allow light enter the building at numerous locations.  The most impressive interior feature is the colored glass wall by the altar that illuminates the front of the sanctuary with light during the day.
