Frederick Lutheran Church, Charlotte Amalie

4.7
#3 of 15 in Historic Sites in St. Thomas
Among the first religious structures erected on St. Thomas, Frederick Lutheran Church is also one of the oldest Lutheran churches in the Western Hemisphere. Constructed in the 18th century and once considered the epicenter of cultural and religious life for people of St. Thomas, the church remains a relevant shrine today. From the outside you can admire the Neoclassical and Gothic architecture, and from within, the stained glass windows and mahogany altar. If you want to have the full cultural experience, stop by for Sunday service.

  • The church is really nice and impressive. The structure is really old but they have done an excellent job of maintaining it. There are some cool things in the cabinets on the inside as well.  more »

  • Today was Palm Sunday. I visit St. Thomas several times each year and it was my first time attending this beautiful and historic 350 year old Lutheran church. My family had such a positive experience. The congregation was very warm and welcoming. We began with a gathering down at the gazebo followed by a traditional palm waving procession up the front steps, led by the choir in their full robes. Lovely service, passionate Pastor with a meaningful sermon , and a friendly sharing of the peace during the service where I felt nearly every member made an effort to stop by our pew to welcome us as visitors. Will definitely look forward to returning on the next trip to worship at Frederick Lutheran Church again!
