  • Beautiful church ⛪ With three English services.. 😊
  • St. Mark's Cathedral is named after Saint Mark very nice and traditional church
  • Traditional Anglican Church. Communion service every week. Patrons will enjoy the old world sanctity and peace. Good outreach programmes. Very good sunday school and youth programmes. St. Marks music academy is very popular and much patronised. One of the few churches with an impressive pipe organ and very experienced conductors. Good choir and last but not least, beautiful architecture with a high dome and very well decorated altar.
  • A place of prayer and hymns. A location where many a weddings are solemnised.
