“Palace of peace in CBD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

This is a quiet, nice place to experience a calm environment although it is in CBD. Lots of shopping, banks, and places to eat.

“Beautiful building surrounded by souls that need saving!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

I am in the CBD quite often and this is one building that is beautiful. It is in a nice location surrounded by upscale shops and lovely parks. HOWEVER the building is also the hangout location for today's misguided youth. Groups of them that make me uneasy when walking past. They are loud, dirty, smoking, swearing and generally a nuisance. At night time I encountered two of these youths swearing and getting into a fist fight. Therefore I unfortunately don't stay too long in the area due to this.

“Stand out building in Perth city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

This refuge from the hustle and bustle of city life is a beautiful old building with a serene atmosphere.

It's a welcome haven for spirituality and one of the historic buildings that Perth needs to keep.

“Nice building, colourful crowd”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

Wesley Church is just off the end of the Hay Street Mall. It is a nice, classic church, and while it is smaller than some of the well-known cathedrals, that gives it a genuine, community-minded atmosphere. Sadly, the area around the church seems to be the gathering point for the “colourful” youth, so expect to see an interesting crowd when you visit Wesley Church. I don’t think they pose a threat to the tourist, but you might see and hear some interesting things.
