History: The Sendinggestig, which is the oldest indigenous mission church in the country, was erected shortly after the establishment of the South African Mission Society in 1799. The building was completed early in 1804 and consecrated on 15 March 1804 by the Rev. J. P. Serrurier. Architecturally the church is also unique, among other things as the only example of a building with a pitched roof of lime concrete in South Africa. The facade with its baroque characteristics and Corinthian pilasters, as well as the 1824 pulpit and the organ, are also particularly noteworthy.
