This church plays a significant role in the struggle against apartheid in South Africa. In order to fully appreciate it I highly recommend hiring Danny as a guide. He seems to be at the church most days and is available for private tours. He is an expert in the subject matter and a charming guide.

You will see evidence of the violent struggles of the 1970s in the broken altar, bulletholes and other damage in the church.

This church has been visited by many interesting politicians including Bill Clinton and Michelle Obama.

The painting entitled "The Madonna and Child of Soweto" is also known as "The Black Madonna". It was created to raise funds for the education of black South Africans.
