  • This is one of the most authentic traditional expressions of Christian worship around. Not to mention the thoughtful preaching that is as inspiring as the architect. Super easy service time as well.
  • Hard to rate a closed church; it was about 9 pm. A lot of character and architecture. Wish I had an opportunity to come back during the day and enjoy more of the history and beauty of this two hundred year old church.
