“Lovely Little Church”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Not a big attraction but intriguing and the graveyard has some interesting gravestones. The setting is lovely and if you are travelling it is a great little rest stop. The views from the churchyard are impressive!

Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

Churches are great history lessons. This us no exception. It is a great example of an early Anglican church.

“Great views to the ocean too”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Nice historic church located on the top of a hill, with great views to the ocean. We visited this one on our island tour by Ted´s Tours. Nice place to stop by. There is also a small shop selling for example delicious rum cakes.

“A wonderful piece of local history”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

This Anglican church is centuries old, yet is an active parish today. There is no fee for visiting, but there is an attached gift shop run by parishioners who have a wealth of knowledge about the church and its historic role in the community. The views from the church cemetery are spectacular and make the trip all the more interesting.
