The woodwork in this church is beautiful. The pulpit with its canopy and intricate woodwork is loose standing and has stairs for the preacher to enter.

Beautiful, different from the conventional. A real landmark of the city of George, central, within walking distance of several hotels, guesthouses and restaurants.
