We visited this place during Christmas time to buy X-mas decorative items from nearby stores and buy Bakery products from nearby McRennet shop. This church has low seating capacity, but it seems to be very old heritage structure and is well maintained so far.

Located on Armenian Street, Parrys is this very old and ancient church, opposite to Madras High Court Building on NSC Bose Road side. Gets pretty crowded during Sunday Prayer service and on few other occasions. Building maintenance is not so good, despite having lot of heritage value.

However, once past the church entrance, the main church building, the bell tower and the well maintained garden in a total world of quiet is great to experience. Situated just a couple of... More
