Rondebosch United church


Driving on Belmont Road, Rondebosch I saw this church that was built in 1953 … yet still as strong and imposing as ever …


This poem is found on the Rondebosch United church homepage;
Those parts of us which seem out of character.
Let us be boldly and gladly out of character.
Let us be creatures of paradox and variety:
creatures of contrast;
of light and shade:
creatures of faith.
God be our constant.
Let us step out of character into the unknown,
to struggle and love and do what we will.

Michael Leunig

    Such a beautiful peace of architecture! wish churches today were built with such purpose.
