Most of Aruba's churches are Catholic so it was well worth tracking down The Protestant Church for the Sunday morning service, held at 10:30 am, mostly in Dutch, but some English, so we could participate and guess the rest.

This church is viewed while looking up to the hill. It is a lovely site while walking around the city. Since it is not normally open to the public, viewing from below is a good idea.

The island of Aruba is 70% Roman Catholic, but nice to know that there is a Protestant presence also. The people of Aruba are warm and friendly, which reflects their devotion to family, country, and God. We loved our brief stay their, including the spiritual components.

The Protestant Church is located downtown behind the Renaissance Hotel. We enjoyed the service very much. Service begins at 10:30 am every Sunday.

This is a beautiful church in Oranjestad. Lovely surrounding. It was closed when we were there (they don't do tours or have it open to the public), but someone let us in as my grandfather used to preach there in the 1950s (I'm from Canada). It is quite beautiful inside if you can get a chance to see it.

Such a quaint church to visit. High up on the hill and a very solemn experience.
