Lego-like church perfect for Brick Testament

Can anything rouse the spirit more than a 65-foot-tall church built of Lego-esque bricks?

"Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves." (Exodus 5)

Imagine trying to build structures out of Lego-style bricks without being given plastic ingredients, and you'd appreciate what life was like in Old Testament Egypt. In modern-day Netherlands, however, Lego enthusiasts built themselves a block church that most kids would freak over.

The Abondantus Gigantus church was constructed last year in Enschede for the Grenswerk Festival out of concrete Legioblocks, which are used to build walls and industrial buildings.

As seen in the vid below, the pavilion sported a 65-foot tower and bricks that were painted in common Lego colors.

Designed by Michiel de Wit and Filip Jonker, the pavilion links a grand structural form with a popular toy in the form of industrial building blocks.

"The odd scale of the church invites the viewer to become aware of the things we take for granted and to observe them once again, more closely, and to either let go or accept," the designers wrote on "The church appeals to sentiments for a renewed sense of community."

Sadly, they don't seem to have had Legomen in attendance. Doubtless they're all busy starring in The Brick Testament.
