This church is part of the downtown St. Thomas USVI historic walking tour. It is open for the public to enter. Once we entered we could sense the many years of worship, actually 350 years. It was such a memorable experience to share what so many before us had felt in the sanctuary. There was no docent available in the... More

I love to visit old Lutheran churches. The woodwork for the time period is very nice, yet exemplifies the humility of their faith. It is amazing how well kept the church building is considering the current building is almost 200 years old and still in daily use.

I was born of Evangelical Lutheran parents from Germany. I was baptized in an Evangelical Church. I was confirmed and sang in an Evangelical Church choir. But I did not believe. Only by the grace of God was I saved and led to a non denominational Bible believing church and led to a saving faith In Jesus Christ in 1997.... More

It's nice and if you're a religious person then you'll find it interesting and I'm sure enjoy going to see it, but I've been to St. Paul's, St. Peter's and the Duomo in Florence, so this didn't do anything for me not even as a photo stop. I didn't bother to take any because it looks so average. If it... More

This historic church has a gift for welcoming visitors and it is a great place to experience the non-touristy part of Charlotte Amalie. Services are held at 9am on Sundays.

The Church is of historical interest, build in 1793, and the official Church for the Danes when they ruled the Islands. The Sunday service takes around 1 hour and 45 minuttes.

This was a nice stop for us to enjoy the beauty of the church and learn about it extensive history. When you visit make sure you go inside, look up, enjoy the architecture, take a good look at the chandelier and the angels in it. Also be sure to read the plaque and learn about the history of the congregation... More

The service this sunday lasted for an hour and 45 minutes, it was a happy and very warm and kind congregation. All visitors in this radiotransmitted service were very well treated and we all felt to be the most important person in the Church. I think Europe has a lot to learn from the Virgin Islands as concerns communication between... More
