A very pretty church in Charlotte Amalie, with a pleasing exterior. We just popped in to look at the interior and a small band was practicing for the Sunday Service. Dark Caribbean wood interior and cool.

After our ship docked, we spent the morning snorkling, then walking downtown, then we came to this church, and it was good to sit down and rest. Very quiet and peaceful inside (very well kept too). Didn't see any pastor or church workers. Not many people visit the church as the main crowd just pass by it from a block... More

St. Thomas has a nice historic walk. Make sure you do it on a day that cruise ships are in port. Otherwise, the only attractions that will be open will be ones like this one.

Loved seeing the pictures in side of the city before it was built up. We enjoy any history, and found this a nice stop.

We visited this church on a Saturday and wished we could've come for their service which the ladies were busy preparing for. We had a nice chat with a member and learned a lot. Has a beautiful mahogany alter, old sailing vessel model like the one carrying the Danish settlers in the 1600's to the island, and is a well... More

I know how I missed it twice. When looking at pictures that people post it appears to be in the open. It was tucked in between other buildings on a busy street. No parking for a few blocks so see it from a walking tour or taxi can drop you off. It had a few plaques inside tell of the... More

My wife & I are Lutherans. We visited this church. While visiting St Thomas on a cruise. It is a very old church that is open for visitors. Very old & interesting history.

We loved exploring the churches in Europe and were surprised on how much St. Thomas has to offer. It is the oldest church building on St. Thomas (the building was completed in 1793) and the second oldest Lutheran Church building in the Western Hemisphere. In its heyday, Lutheranism was the state religion of Denmark which contributed to its popularity. The... More
