Visited just to take photos as such a lovely old building. Worth seeing and spending a little while here.

The Old Apostolic Church, situated at 72 Voortrek St was formerly known as St Luke's Mission church. It was designed by Sophia, wife of the first Bishop of Cape Town, Robert Gray. The building was consecrated in 1869 and although it is close to 150 years old, it has been well maintained.
The adjoining building, at 74-76 Voortrek St, a flat-roofed ediface with a prominent cornice, was built a bit later as the mission school for the congregants' children. Both buildings have been accorded provincial heritage site status.
Newer additions to the church have been constructed on the south side of the building, though remarkably enough, neither transepts nor chancel. The alterations cannot be seen from the main road, so what the passer-by sees, is essentially the original footprint of the church.
Apart from the choice of buttercup yellow for the exterior walls, and the ashphalting of the walkways around the church, it stands proud and true as a good example of mid- eighteenth centuary ecclesiastical architecture.
Time constraints made arrangements to see the interior of the church, difficult, but that notwithstanding, it was interesting to visit.
