Regina Mundi Church is a stained glass window church and place where many gathered for political meetings during Apartheid. It is also the site of many police raids. Mass is held Sunday from 7-8am and 9-10am and every other day between 8-9am. When mass is not in session you can enter the church and, on the balcony in the back, view a photo exhibit of the events of the June 16, 1976 Soweto Uprising. For a guided tour (fee: a small donation) stop at the building beside the church between 9am-5pm and ask for a tour.
