  • Although an amazing building. I cant give this place more than 1*. The place is to extravagant for a place of worship. I feel a amazing place could of been built for a 1/3 or 1/2 the cost with extra money been given to charity or to run community support. Instead it was spent on marble floor and chandleers. A nice place for a wedding but not a place to worship.
  • A great place with plenty of parking space and very welcoming volunteers. Beautiful architecture with a real homely and spiritual vibe.
