I attended a service with approximately 1,200+ of my closest friends. It is a beautifully calming interior with a working pipe organ. It's a shame only 100 people on average attend service here.

Sorry for delay but I walked from my hotel (doubletree) for a Sunday morning service. Streets were very quiet and saw some on street parking . Would probably be busier in area if going on a sat evening.
