On the Main Road
lip 2016 • Dla rodziny
On the Main Road on the right-hand side of the town as you come in from the national road, you'll easily view the Church.

Dating back almost 200 years old, the beautiful architecture is unmistakable and definitely at least worth a look if in the area.

Another Sophia Gray creation!
mar 2016 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
This charming old church in Heidelberg Road definitely bears the hallmarks of the churches designed by Sophia, the wife of Robert Gray, the Bishop of the Cape colony in the mid 1800's. Its characteristic steeply sloping roof, narrow nave and elongated Gothic style windows, can be seen in many of the churches around South Africa which she planned.
This church is constructed of dressed stone and was consecrated in 1856. At a later stage, the nave was extended and a transept added to the south facing side. A freestanding bell tower, housing a single bell, stands near the perimeter of the churchyard.
Unfortunately, the exterior of the building has not been well maintained, the gutters are weed infested and the gardens could do with some TLC. Nevertheless, this beautiful old church is well worth a visit and it is heart-warming to know that it still is serving the spiritual needs of the community.
