We chanced on this church on a hot day and it offered a relaxing and informative visit. It was a fascinating view of a church founded in colonial times; the roof, built as an upturned ship's hull, is impressive and we were told has withstood...More

Dates back to the 1840's and built in 1920 and part of the historic trust of the Cayman Islands. The denomination is Presbyterian. Named after the past pastor. Sunday service but was closed on our weekday visit.

This wonderful whitewashed church in the very heart of the George Town waterfront has a long and distinguished history for this Crown Colony. It was actually constructed as recently as the 1920s, and the architect, a naval architect, designed the roof in the form of...More

This small well kept church is worth going into. Inside behind the altar are a couple of stained glass windows. At either side are plaques remembering different church wardens and contributers to the island. Outside at the back of the church yard are some old...More

This is a lovely church in the heart of Georgetown on the front. It is very tranquil inside and it's lovely to spend time in such a peaceful place either in prayer or in reflection....
