BLUE CHRIST CHURCH

BLUE CHRIST CHURCH

This neo-Gothic parish church was built in the early 1880s. The brick structure was erected in the form of a cross basilica (a cross church set up as a basilica, which means that the church building has side aisles lower than the middle aisle and that the central aisle above the side aisles is provided with a row of windows). The interior of the church was also neo-Gothic and included a 16th century bluestone baptismal font in Gothic style. Little is left of the original pump and splendor today. Attempts to restore the church were not successful. In 2015, the organ pipes of the valuable 16th century organ were stolen to be sold for scrap…
