Church of the Scots
Feb 2019 • Solo
Located almost opposite the parliament this wooden church is not as grand as the St.Georges' Cathedral, but ist has an interesting history. Started as a Dutch Reformist Church it was taken over by the Scotch Presbyterian community of the town in early 19th century. The church is of historical interest due to th fact that it was the first one to allow slaves to worship in it.

The church has a very rich history tied to the experiences of enslaved people and the church. The colonialists and their role is evident in the church.

Nice Arhitecture

This Kirk us a bit different as it's all wooden and it stands out from the local buildings. It looks quite impressive from the outside, inside its relatively plain and simple...what you'd expect from a church building of this faith.

I was visiting St. Andrew´s Kirk in the center of Georgetown with my wife and in my opinion this is one of the "must see" when you visit the city.

Oldest Wooden Building in Georgetown
Oct 2017 • Couples
Worth a quick stop to see this old wooden structure. As with other old buildings in Georgetown requires maintenance, but adds to British feel of this capital city.

Colonial beautiful architecture kept in such poor condition. Looks like they are being allowed to fall to pieces. Lets hope they spend some money maintaining it before it is too late

Historical Wooden Church
Sep 2015 • Solo
I saw St. Andrew's Kirk while walking around Georgetown. It is close to the market and the other old historical wooden buildings. The guidebook seemed to indicate it was open to the public, but it appeared closed when I visited. There is a tall metal fence around the church and it was hard to take a good photo. There were no signs indicating open hours. The church is easy to see while walking around town but not worth a special visit unless you know it will definitely be open.
