The church was neo charismatic so everything was noise and a mess. It was a small church and they didn’t tell us before the tour. I don’t recommend this tour. There are other churches better to visit

Sorry I just saw this. The Sunday tour joined a regular Sunday church service. There was a sermon with local people attending the service. Was great to be part of that .
