Known colloquially – and affectionately – as ‘The Church of the Telegraph Poles’, St George’s Anglican Church, East Ivanhoe, is a striking example of architectural dignity and grace combined with contemporary appeal and utility of purpose. It is a well-known landmark in the district and adds an aesthetic dimension to its environment.
The church is designed as a dual purpose space combining worship and social and community activities. The church and associated buildings wrap around an open grassed courtyard, which sits at the heart of the East Ivanhoe, where all are welcome to utilise this communal safe space.
