Went during Sunday morning service. It's big but was packed with people having to pray outside. Service was in English. Completed in the 1950s it has interesting twin towers and plain whitewashed facade with good stained-glass windows but otherwise plain interior.

there are ample free parking in the compound and the road leading to the church. Sundays the police normally do not issue summons during service time. go early and you will not face much problem about parking.
