Tiny replica of the tiny church. Tiny Church at the Tiny Church

The tiny church in Forestville always seems enveloped in a pleasing cocoon of unconventional energy. We popped in just before New Year's, and the Lucky Mojo shop was abuzz with charm-making and positive spell recipe-sharing. The outdoor miniature model railroad didn't seem to be in service that day, and its tiny town looked like a hurricane had struck (winter storm debris loosed from the trees). A miniature version of part of the property includes the labyrinth, and an itty bitty replica of the tiny church. And a pair of twin girls sitting on a bench.

Deities of the tiny church. World's Smallest Church

Missionary Independent Spiritual Church, billed as the World's Smallest Church, is 35 square inches smaller than the previous record-holder in New York State.

It is open to the public 7 days a week. Candle services are conducted daily. The altars, under a stained glass window, contain a multitude of deities from all faiths: Christian, Hindu, Taoist, Buddhist, Kemetic, shamanic, tribal, etc. Two smaller shrines outside flank the building. The church has its own Yahoo group with hundreds of members.
