Deep in the heart of the Johannesburg CBD, past the bleating taxis, nestled neatly at the corner of Prichard and Small Street, rests the Central Methodist Church. Famed for not only carrying an aspirant religion, but with it, the battered hopes, fleeting dreams and steely resolve of many African nationals. However, ts greatest boast of all may be its subtle beauty.
“So much of what Africa is, walks in and out of this church…. The church stands for a place of hospitality and welcome to all. It’s a place that celebrates the vast richness and diversity of South Africa.”
Bishop Paul Verryn of the Central Methodist Church.
