Photographs and information on the church bell of the Methodist Church in Beaufort West. On the main street of Beaufort West there is the Methodist Church with a detached bell tower in front of the church building. The bell is protected on both sides by iron bars and looks rather plain at first sight. Getting closer to the bell reveals on the waist the emblem of the founder Rincker and below this the year 1982. On the shoulder on the other side is an inscription in large letters that reads EHRE SEI GOTT DER HOCHSTE. Somewhat surprising is that the bell niche has been sealed off by steel bars. Looking at older pictures of the church shows that there was another bell hanging in the tower. Probably, the church authorities wanted to prevent another stealing.
