Concrete church in Schaerbeek

Yesterday evening I visited a friend in Schaerbeek, Brussels. On the way I saw this wonderful church. From a distance it looked like a reduced-scale version of the Ukraina hotel in Moscow. My friend told me it was the first concrete church in Europe. It looks half-derelict, but it is well used, he said. The sound of African hymn-singing often wafts out into the city.
