Estcourt – St Mathews Anglican Church

Architecturally and with the many stained-glass windows, this natural sandstone 1882 Church is one of my favorites in KZN. The ambiance from the natural light seeping through the windows gives the interior a special peaceful aura.   I was grateful for Fr, Madoda Khumalo for giving me access to the Church and graveyard. The graveyard is fenced to prevent vandals easily entering the property. See the full album in Gallery under Churches, Missions and Monasteries.
