I'd been in this church a few years ago and it still delights. You can imagine the respite and peace this little church gave to the sailors and apprentices (smack boys) in the past and no doubt now as well. Just spent a few minutes in here soaking up the history of this little gem.

Did not go inside but worth a look from the outside. It looked very small but was attractive. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Ramsgate.

The models the style of pews and the old building could have you think this is a museum but its not. We have been in a couple of times and its peaceful and open almost all the time. Yesterday we visited during their bible reading marathon. Very nice pastor well worth a visit as you walk along the harbour -... More

A lovely little church to discover, with several ship models inside, of all sizes.. Don't miss the Smack Boys home right next door.

This little church by the Ramsgate Royal Harbour is such a beautiful and peaceful place where it isn't unusual to be asked to join in for a cup of tea when visiting. It's full of history, wonderful to photograph, and the services are not to be missed.

This tiny church is a landmark in the harbour, looks well used and cared for. There was no one there when we went in, we just walked around and read the signs and looked at the displays on the wall.

The church contains lots of maritime memorabilia such as model boats and pictures, which are interesting if you are into history or that kind of thing.
