  • This old church sits opposite the futuristic looking Lloyds Building and the other modern skyscrapers in the city. Nice features.  more »
  • While it's hard to time your visit here (it is often closed to tourists), your perseverance will be rewarded. Checking out the monuments in advance online also helps.  more »

  • Came for a lunchtime talk. Very warm welcome, clear teaching of biblical truth, everyone I spoke to was friendly regardless of background, and the setting itself is beautiful. Will be returning for a Sunday evening service. Nice and close to Liv St station too
  • A church located just right beside the Girkin. A place where the truth of God is preached. This is Christ centred and Word centred church. Christ has died for our sins and bring his people back to God and whoever believes in Him will be saved.
