The central Pondy Seventh-day Adventist church is in the ancient White City (the colonial city) also known as "French District" of Pondicherry. It is a complex made of a school (one of the best of the city : every year the pupils are among the best of the State during the examinations) and of a temple situated in the angle of « Rue de l'Évêché »street and Victor Simonel street (the same street as the French high school).
The church is reachable by the Victor Simonel street but, because of the renovation of the church (photo), the worship services takes place in a classroom with an extension in the courtyard of the school (sheltered under a tent). The members are very warm. You will certainly speak with one of the pupils who learns French or then one of the former French soldiers (Indians).
Be not surprised if you note a separation between men / boys and women / girls. We can find women sat by her husbands among the men but rarely the opposite situation.
Notes : the Sabbath school youth class is in English, the Divine service is in Tamil.
The Sabbath day service takes places on the morning from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm (Sabbath School and Divine Service).
