One of the nicest Protestant churches in Sri Lanka. Close to the Galle Face Hotel. Quiet, good ambience and fine organist and choir. The congregation is friendly. Don't miss the Carol Service at Christmas.

It's a nice, quite place to praise the lord which is located on the right side of the Galle road from the Galle Face Green.
