Following young Dylan Parrish’s diagnosis with leukaemia in 1995, the decision was taken by Shane & Angel to have him baptised.
The church also got another visit in the previous episode from Damian, Selina, Curtis, Sally and Nelson, when Damian invited his friends to an atmospheric night-time performance of his poetry in the graveyard. When the heavens opened, they sought shelter inside the church, only to be spooked by a child’s coffin placed in front of the altar.
Unusually, rather than using the familiar church location in Pitt Town that had been used since 1988, for these scenes the show utilised a much larger church in the suburb of Ashfield, in Sydney’s Inner West. This may be partly due to the lack of adjoining cemetery at Pitt Town’s church.
