“Unique, quite remarkable”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Unlike any church I have ever seen, its almost like a movie set, especially as it overlooked by the wooden bell tower opposite.

Just go and look at it.

Beautiful.

“A must see”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Even for those who do not normally visit churches on their travels this is a must see building. Constructed of wood it makes a magnificent sight.

In the centre of town well worth a visit.

“Worth a Quick Look”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Interesting wooden church. It is unique in that it is wooden and hasn't had the usual fire that plagued many wooden structures in years past. As the patronage grew over time, an additional church was constructed alongside, giving it a unique 'twin' architecture.

“Ordinary, nothing spectacular”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

This wooden church is nice to see from the outside, and is plain on the inside except for all the colourful flags from many different countries.

Wanted to like the church, however found it very plain and ordinary.
