About St Andrews Presbyterian Church, Colombo
This church may be the only real remaining evidence that once upon a time, Ceylon had a significant Scottish presence. They were tea-planters longing for home, and though they built this church, they are here no longer. Now it is a Protestant place of worship, with a congregation of immigrants, locals and tourists. Stepping in is like stepping into another world. You can forget for a moment that you are in Colombo, when you see the stained glass and white walls and the bare stone, and you hear the singing. The starkness is very engaging somehow. You must catch the choir service. It's magic.

St Andrews Presbyterian Church, Colombo Reviews
One of the best churches I have been to, very peaceful indeed. Please don't forget to go through the comments book that is placed at the rear end and leave a comment if you like. I have been to the church before interviews and the atmosphere and surrounding gave me great courage along with my prayers. Once I have been there for a wedding and for it's rehearsals they do it very elegantly and in a very organized manner.
Peaceful calm and religious place. Fine for a church wedding
A nice old church
A beautiful place. A place where young kids learn to become men
