Drove into town early this morning to draw money from the ATM, get there too late and the line stretch around the block. On my way home I had to pass the Anglican church and the early morning sun was just starting to fall on it.

St Mathews Anglican church, "Church of the Province of South Africa, Dioceses of Natal", to give it, it's full title celebrated it's 140th anniversary last month.
The church was consecrated in 1872, though the establishment of the congregation itself goes back to the 1850's.
Side view of the church.
The tower was only added, so I've been told, 80 years later.
Close up of the tower.
Western view of the church. The whole church is built of dressed sandstone blocks. A perfect little English church in Africa.
This church has a vibrant and growing, mostly black congregation.
