Utter peace, combined with history
fev de 2017 • Amigos
A time-warp stepping back into 130 years if settler history. A tiny beautifully maintained church, sitting innocently in sun-drenched, old garden. Twice altered over the years, this keeper of settler records is well worth a visit when in Bathurst. A stroll around the grounds, and reading the headstones is like a book on history- names that reoccur over the years and all of whom stem from the hardy settlers who arrived there in 1820.

Tiny church

All locked up but we walked around the perimeter. Lovely that the parishioners can be buried in the churchyard. There is also a memorial plaque section.

A note to visitors - the current pic on the TA" things to do in Bathurst" site, is not the Wesleyan Church in Bathurst. The church is also better known as the "Methodist Church".
As with most churches built for use by Methodists, the style of this building is uncompromisingly practical and almost devoid of any embellishment, yet there is such beauty in its simplicity. It only consists of two rooms, the main space being the place of worship and the anterior room -a multi- functional space with desk, cupboards, etc.
It has a fascinating history, as it was used as a refuge for the townsfolk during the Frontier wars, providing protection and sanctuary - today it is there for the spirirtual upliftment of the community.
I can well believe that many folk have found peace within these walls - the wooden pews look orginal and gleam with a patina which only comes from much cleaning.
A large Wesleyan bible, dating back to the early 1900's is prominently displayed and is eye-catching.
Grateful thanks to all who made it possible for me to view the interior at such short notice, with special thanks to Lara and the canine beasties who provided an escort for us!

This is a 1820 settlers church which is still running services on a Sunday. Its part of the South Africa Methodist Church and the service is conducted in English. All are welcome
