Die nuwe kerk se hoeksteenlegging was in Oktober 1892. Op die agtergrond is die ou kerk, wat die gemeente 63 jaar gedien het. Twee galerye van die ou kerk is deel gemaak van die nuwe kerk en is vandag (2015) nog in gebruik, 183 jaar nadat dit opgerig is.

Donkinstraat, Beaufort-Wes, in 1905. Munisipale ordonnansies van destyds het boomplantpligte aan inwoners opgedra. Die peerbome aan die hoofstrate het veral in die lente 'n feestelike atmosfeer geskep. Enkele van die bome is tot nasionale gedenkwaardighede verklaar, maar 'n eeu ná die foto geneem is, is Donkinstraat redelik boomloos. Links op die voorgrond is Beaufort-Wes se eerste "supermark", T.A. Thwaits central dealer drapery groceries ironmongery buyer. Voor sy veranda is 'n tentagtige bousel.

Donkin Street, Beaufort-Wes, in 1905. Minicipal ordinance of the time obliged residents to plant trees. The pear trees in the main street made a festival atmosphere especially in spring. Some of these trees were declared national monuments, but a century after this photo was taken, Donkin Street is virtually tree-less. On the left in the foreground is Beaufort-West's first "Supermarket", T.A. Thwaits central dealer drapery groceries ironmongery buyer. In front the verandah is a tent-like structure.
