The oldest church in Meghalaya. Built in 1841 AD by the Welsh Missionaries who had settled in Sohra, it was destroyed in the great earthquake in 1897 AD but was again rebuilt. It recently celebrated its 175 year anniversary. Next to it lies a very old cemetery where many Britishers were laid to rest.

On the way to Caves, this is on outskirt of Sohra. Suggests good missionary activity done more than 100 years ago and provides the reason why majority follows christian religion.
