We visited on a Saturday and it was very quiet. It looked quiet uninspiring when you go down the steps to the entrance, only when you come out and stand with your back to the harbour do you get a sense of it's faded grandeur, almost like a small palazzo stolen from Venice.

Delightful little church, with lots of information & history. Truly part of the Port's history, and not to be missed.

This little church situated at the bottom of the stair at the harbour end of the west cliffs is a true gem & a haven of Peace & Tranquility in a busy seaside town.

Very often open for a coffee. There are some lovely ship models to see. As it is a church, it is a peaceful place to sit and reflect.

A new concept in Sunday church service by the sea. We loved the timing of the service at 6 p.m. and the friendliness of the congregation. Quite like visiting an historic church and sea lovers' museum at the same time. Worth the visit and spending time with this welcoming group of locals.
