(Jan De Voslei)


Arch. Jos Smolderen
Picture by Johan Mares (@Belgiumview)



This Christ King church was built between 1928 and 1930 according the plans of gebouwd Jos Smolderen. This church was constructed in a new byzantin art decostyle. This church was a piece of the Worldexhibition of 1930: there is now an exhibition of Felmish Primitifs there.

The concrete porticois in contrast with the bricks fassades. Above the fassade we can see a kind of fronton, also executed in concrete.It contents five tabernacles under simple baldachins, with five statues..

This church is covered with dome-shaped roofs on simple pendentives. In the drum of these domes windows are foreseen, which gives a nice light effect.

The semi-circular choir contents,besides the main altar with a crusifix, beautiful fraaie glassframes with therebetween statues.

The pilars are decorated with beautifully decorated kapitals with therabove a small tooth course. Hereabove begin the massive semi-circular arches in the maconnery.

The organ is is a remarquable phenomenon. The organ pipes are spread over the total width but in such a way that the created openings corresponded with the glassframes there behind.

The white stone pulpit radiates simple robustness.
