  • Very pretty Church. Our ship had 2 stops, Nassau and Free Port. We used this stop for History/Culture (The church, Fort Fin castle, Queens Staircase, And walking around enjoying street performers. We walked everywhere as everything was close) and the other stop for shopping/beach. This was our first destination. We just walked right in and started looking around at all the decorations and figures. Plaques inside give you some history.
  • That is my preferred place of worship. Great religious space great music and ambiance.
  • Only caught the outside but it is a great little church just before parliament/Duke Street.
  • Beautiful church close to port and downtown hotels.
  • great place to worship off boat on your travels. meet the warm and friendly local congregation, great organist and stunning nave
