This is a warm and welcoming Church with a lovely atmosphere. The décor is quite reserved and tasteful. My most intense experience of the Easter celebrations was here. It holds a special place in my heart. Would recommend to all.

A beautiful place to visit where you will receive a warm welcome. You can pray, receive a blessing when services are taking place or just appreciate the architecture.
