  • Attended the Advent Evening service, and enjoyed the beautiful music. Choir did well, and the organ was a pleasure to listen to and an inspiration to worship. Just a pity that the congregation was so thin at about 35.
  • One of the Cathedrals in Southern Africa wich is not only amongst the oldest but also diverse. This Cathedral is well known for its traditional style of worship and music. It is amongst few churches in Anglican churches of South Africa where foreigners from neighboring country of Zimbabwe are allowed to hold their own Shona service and worship under the leadership of James Tonde Nhererwa. A very encompassing and beautiful place let alone welcoming.
