The old building 1956 - 2004
Yelet Giorgis Church is a church of over 2,500 members in Yelet, Bulga, Ethiopia. The church is dedicated to Saint George. The church body has been in existence since the 17th century. The first building, a traditional circular thatch roof church, burnt down in 1950. A modern, iron roof church was built in its place by Dejazmach Kidane Woldemedhin and dedicated in 1956. This building was erected on the same church site and served its community for a further 51 years until a more modern, 8-sided stone building was built in its place during the years 2004–2007. The new church was dedicated on 23rd Tikmt 2000 (Ethiopian calendar), which corresponds to 3 November 2007 in the Gregorian calendar.
