This church has similarities to some churches we have seen the 3 times we have visited London and seems to inhale the Presbyterian theme to some degree. I understand this church was built around 1920 by a naval architect. It has withstood significant damage over...More

After getting off our ship, we were walking on Harbour Street in Georgetown, Grand Cayman and what do we see but, The Elmslie United Church. I was immediately attracted because that is my surname. Indirectly related historically, we found this to be a wonderful opportunity...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....

This roof for this church was built by a shipwright. The heavy interior beams show the skills of his trade. A visit here is always a welcome quiet, cool escape from the crowds and heat and commercial chaos outside.

The woodwork on the ceiling was breathtaking, as were the stained-glass windows. Just a short walk from downtown Georgetown, worth a peek if you get a chance.
