Azania Front Lutheran Church information
A striking edifice, with a red-roofed belfry overlooking the water and a rather stern Gothic interior, this is one of the city’s major landmarks. The church was built in 1898 by German missionaries and was the centre of the German mission in Tanzania; now it is the cathedral for the diocese and is still in active use for services and choir rehearsals (beautiful – you can sometimes hear the singing from the street).
Services in English are held in the early evening; all other services are in Kiswahili.
