Overview

Situated on one of Kingston's busiest route this church serves as a landmark and iconic building to many. The simple elegance of this beautiful white church is not lost on any one who has ever entered its door. Even a cursory glance from the street demands a second look. Its original shape was changed in 1997 to its present cruciform shape so that its 700-member congregation can be accommodated. There are no windows as the large folding glass doors eliminated the need for them. A circular stained glass window with a praying hand and a cross is a piece of beauty. Unlike a lot of churches, simplicity is the order of the day. Some treasures include sculpture of the "Burning Bush" by Edna Manley and a large chandelier over the front pews.
