Purple Brain Drain

I didn’t want to go too Jesus on your arses after the Hillsong Teddies, but Elwrongo’s post demanded urgent attention. He’s really getting into the spirit of The Worst of Perth isn’t he? Elwrongo says…

Eden Hill Family Church is an striking example of modern suburbia reinventing itself. The building, which was an abandoned early seventies shopping centre, has now been repurposed into a house of worship, replete with an attractive coat of lilac. Nevertheless, Eden Hill Family Church appears somewhat bunkered down in a barren landscape of decaying carparks with only its gloomy and somewhat reproachful message “Jesus Died for You” for the passerby. This structure, or one like it, may well have been the inspiration for George Romero’s central use of an deserted shopping centre in the zombie classic, “Dawn of the Dead”.
A word of advice: I wouldn’t go there at night.


I find this building even more depressing than the dismal brothel on Beaufort Street seo company. I think this one can be tagged with worst of the worst. No church is going to beat this house of horror is it? Is it?

    Go this Sunday evening if you dare! Prophetic/healing prayer after preacher talks (but you’ll have to venture inside the lilac building itself, through the purple roller door actually, if you want your fortune told). 248 Morley Drive East, Eden Hill, 5pm.


  16. Fuck!!! I just got hit by lightening!


  17. Yeah….I lit up real fucking good mate!!! Then I turned into a pillar of salt, had a plague of boils and felt a strange but compelling need to build a pyre and throw my two children on it in a strange old testament kind of way.
