We’re not really into church buildings, but this one has certainly been looked after and is still in use today. We visited briefly on our Convict Settlement Tour.
Gorgeous building with amazing history!
A truly beautiful building with amazing history...join one of the tours that take you to the Chapel to hear the details about this gorgeous chapel.
Tag a long Tour
We went on the tag a long tour to the Maritime Museum and Protestant Chapel. Our guide was just fabulous being very knowledgeable and also very interesting. We went through the maritime museum and she explained how this museum was built in just 7 months. Amazing architecture and also amazing contents.
She also took us upstairs to the chapel which still holds services today. Very interesting bit of history.
This is amazing as it is still used and very old
Quite amazing that a floor was demolished for this place and even more amazing is that the church is still used today along with some of the old pews from yesteryear.
Night Church Service
We attended a church service on the island at the Protestant Chapel Maritime Museum one night, and were lucky enough to hear the Anglican Bishop of Sydney give the lesson. When the service had ended we had to navigate the steep outside steps from the Chapel to the footpath in pitch dark and then by the light of the stars try and find our car parked along the road. All in all a great adventure.
What a great place to visit and to hear the stories of how Christianity was bought to the island and is maintained
A lovely afternoon service and sing along
We went to the 4.30pm service which was taken from the 1662 Common Book of Prayer followed by a selection of hymns chosen by all the visitors present. A lovely time of worship and meeting with like minded visitors and locals.
we had the half day island tour which included the church it was magnificent just the history and the workmanship that went into it was great to see a must do
The outside of the building does not reflect the inside. You walk in an are amazed by the sheer grandeur of the church. It was not designed to be a church and clearly was a two storey building but what an amazing transformation????
