I was headed to Woolworths (opposite this church) when I espied this beautiful building. I'd heard/read about it, but did not realise it was in the centre of the city - a pleasant surprise.

Gorgeous placed to go if you are into your religion and/or archetechture. The stained glass is wonderful and plenty of electric fans inside to keep you cool.

I love visiting old churches while traveling and spent some time in this beautiful church and in the surrounding property. There are volunteers there who can give tours or you can
