St Phillips Church

50 Godlonton Street, Fingo Village

The red-brick church is St Philip’s Anglican Church, built in 1860 as the Grahamstown Mission and twin of St Bartholomew’s which can be seen from here in the western part of town. Like St Barts, the buildings included a school and rectory. The brickwork on the church is in the same style as the poor-houses of St Barts. St Philip’s houses a stained-glass baptistry window of a Black Madonna which the church received in 1945, evidence of the emergence of black consciousness in the Anglican Church.
