Whilst on our tour we were very fortunate enough to bump into the Rev. Latimer, a very famous name here. I have yet to meet a person with more charisma than this man.!!

Hugely impressive building that's recently been given some TLC with a renovation that shows it off very well. You'll spot it from a walk on the city walls (especially if you get a local guide to give you the info on the more famous buildings you pass by on the walk). Its stature and graceful proportions may look imposing but it's still a welcoming place for worshippers on Sundays.

It was an exciting visit to be able to see this beautiful building restored. It has been many years since I had been their and it was wonderful to see how it have changed and renewed itself. We were greeted by a very friendly and interesting guide who was able to fill us in on lots of details that might escape the visitor who can't take everything in on the first viewing. It was nice to see the area at the side of the church which is laid out like a little personal museum, you can even pose as an old fashioned school master complete with gown and mortar. The stainglass windows are magnificent and well worth a visit.

This church was extensively damaged by petrol bombs and dry rot. It has been beautifully restored. The stained glass windows are quite colourful for a Presbyterian church. The exterior is also very impressive.
