Beautiful church

I love this church. The stained glass windows are exquisite. There is a brochure explaining them. It's a good place to relax and enjoy the quiet atmosphere.

This is one of the loveliest buildings in this supremely beautiful town of Stellenbosch. We may have been spoiled by the weather but this is a building that takes the eye - adding to the character and the class of this location - we didn't go inside but outside was impressive.

The church is located in the heart of the city by all of the cafes. The outside has the interesting Dutch architecture and the inside has some very nice stained glass windows. Worth a short visit.

Stands out in Stellenbosch at the end of Church Street, or Kerk Street as it's known locally. Church St is where you'll find all the delightful little cafes and shops - a wonderful wine town.

Situated near the gardens, this old church is well worth a visit. Lovely stained glass windows that are quite modern in design, yet in keeping with the architecture. Unusual seating plan makes this a place to go. The volunteer guides speak English and are eager to help.

Stellenbosch is packed with stunning architecture, but a visit to this charming old church is definitely recommended. This beautiful building is located near the centre of town and some of the best restaurants in Stellenbosch.

I often attend church in this building because of the excellent Christian services they offer but I think for travellers it is a historic building that has information on the history of Stellenbosch and the church. The church has also been painted by various well known RSA painters, one being Portchie. A definitely place to visit when in Stellenbosch.
