On the street where I live-Chennai




A beautiful Wesley Church lies a few houses away from my house, a part of which faces the Poonamallee High Road . It was just another monument until a few days ago.

It looks like it could be church right here in Virginia. Being a Methodist pastor and in the Wesley heritage, I appreciate you sharing the pics of the church. It has a lovely old feel to it. I would love to know when it was built.
