Memorial Church at Bethelsdorp

I've posted pictures of the Van der Stel Memorial Church (United Congregational Church) in Bethelsdorp before, but here's another one for good measure.  The church was originally built in 1803 and has since been rebuilt and extended.  Its probably the oldest church in Port Elizabeth and is generally regarded as the first Congregational church in southern Africa.

  1. I enjoy photos of historical sites.. good to see the church being maintained. I especially like the dramatic colours in this photo - the ominous grey of the sky and the dark green trees...
