Atop a big hill, I was more involved with the views of the canal and shipyard and coal production than with the outdoor and indoor church. Sweet, and recommended.

A good place to visit. The Church is located on the hill, having port at the back side. The experience is superb, where you can be with the God, & with the beauty of nature too.

It being Christmas time, the cute little church on Ross hill was decked up, with a crib erected and festoons fluttering. This was the only church we have ever seen anywhere in the world where Jesus and Mary could be found wearing marigold garlands. Effects of cross-cutting cultures?
