Another church which I visited when I was in India was the Wesley Church in Secunderabad. Some of my Singapore visitors may know that there is a Wesley Church in Singapore. This church in Secuderabad is a far cry from the Singapore one which is just off Orchard Road and would describe the congregation to be of “above average” income.

It was therefore a real contrast to see Wesley Church in Secuderabad which was quite unkempt and quite in need of fixing (which incidentally, I was glad to see, was underway). The groundskeeper/guard of the church has a young daughter with cancer and is awaiting a free operation as they have no money. I gave him some but please do pray for him and his daughter if you feel so inclined.

However, the church had a nice old and nostalgic feel to it. Take a look.

The facade being slowly renovated and the entrance to the pastoral offices.

The parish hall from outside and inside where Sunday services are held (quite spartan).

The side view of the church (nice but rather delapidated) and the backyard with the church bus (from which century, I don’t know).
