St Andrew Chapel

St. Andrew Chapel is the original chapel of the monastery that was transformed from a farm pole barn into a worship place. The chapel was used for all services from 1988 to 2012 when the new Temple was consecrated.

Over the years the chapel has been continually upgraded and beautified. Today, though most services are held in the Main Church, the chapel is used occasionally as an alternative place of worship.
