Kirk in the Hills

1340 W. Long Lake Rd.
Bloomfield Hills, MI 48302 United States

This towering cathedral can first be seen driving on Long Lake Rd. Upon further inspection, the rest of the sprawling property comes into view. There is a lovely refectory on the west end of the church, which overlooks a beautiful lake. Many summer evenings, the sun shines through the refectory’s endless windows, and chamber music is given a home like no other. Newly air-conditioned.
