Central Methodist Mission


Central Methodist Mission review Rate it

Resembling a location from a Tim Burton movie, this grey Gothic revivalist church with its needle-like spires looks a tad out of place (and a bit too dignified) amid the noisy colour explosion of informal stalls in Greenmarket Square. The contrast of the outside bustle with the quiet calm inside the church is intense, and it's worth a visit to marvel at the impressive architecture of pointed arches and flying buttresses, and to find out more about the erstwhile Methodist Church in Buitenkant Street, which served as a haven for activists during the struggle years, from the leaflets that you can pick up here.
