Grahamstown : Commemoration Methodist Church
The next town we were visiting was Grahamstown. It was less than 30 minutes to drive from Bathurst to Grahamstown. We drove into Grahamstown and the first thing we saw was the Methodist Commemoration Church. My husband saw the open door and we stopped for a look inside.The foundation stone for this church was laid in 1845. It is built in a Gothic Revival style and can seat about 1200 people. The organ was installed in 1875 and is the 3rd largest in South Africa. The original pew boxes are still in use.
