Wonderful history dating back 1000 years. Well worth a visit. There are people there that can answer any questions on the church. Stained glass behind the alter is amazing! Oldest Organ in the City! Recommended.

This church is in one corner of the Postman Park. They conduct lunch time talks from the Bible. The church building is nearly one thousand years old. Important thing is that message of Jesus Christ death and resurrection is proclaimed here.
