  • I discovered the Swedenborgian Church while on a City Guides walking tour. What a gem! Hidden behind a wall, you walk past a mini meadow with nicely kept flowers & shrubs. The church interior has a Swedish design inclination. Loads of wood and a very natural style of decor. There are antique items that make the place feel homey. The interior design is unique. The congregation is a mix of people and very welcoming. This intimate church is a nice respite from the larger more flamboyant churches. If you like architecture/interior design, check this place out.
  • I just had my wedding there about a month ago and let me tell you it was AMAZING! I am so glad I choose that chapel, the people there are amazing just trying to make sure you're okay and are ready.. we got the whole package with pictures video candy table everything.
