Well worth a visit; helpful and considerate guides who ask only a small contribution for your visit. Again it is fascinating to see the grave stones of the early Anglican settlers and try and understand how it felt to be months from home in a different world,

Reviewed 17 November 2012

The Church was built in 1871 and doesnt seems to be receiving as much attention and care as the Dutch Reformed Church next door! When driving in to Galle from the Southern Highway you feel a sense of antiquity when you see the clock tower and the pink roof of this church among other known structures looming out in the horizon.

The gallows in the by gone days is supposed to have been where the alter is now.

Few visitors go in and there didnt seem to be anyone in particular to narrate the history, except for the caretaker who was new to the premises,
