An Underground church named after the Catacombs in Rome. A place of serenity where week by week we tell others the great news that Jesus still forgives sin for those who seek him.

Well worth the visit. Very easy to find, easy access into the church itself. Donation box at the entrance, open 24 hours. We arrived just after a tour bus arrived. While the bus load of sightseers made the place a little crowded, we were able to hear the background information given by the guide, including tips on photography. Once the... More

Called in to see what it was like. Interesting that the doors are open 24/7. Not as ornate as the Catholic church but interesting just the same.

Peaceful underground church in Cooper Pedy. Indeed it is plain, but that is part of the attraction. Worth seeing.

We arrived in CP when it was so hot, with 1000 files around us, and when we decided to visit the curch (mostly for cooling purposes), it was a pleasant surprise! The couple who 'managed' the curch were amazingly friendly! We had a little chat about the city, there curch, and we could cool down as long as we wanted!... More

I found the Serbian church more interesting and impressive, but both are worth a look if you have the time. Donation entrance.

Expected it to have much prettier things around the altar - not really worth seeing - it's very basic for a church

Simplicity of worship. What do I mean by writing this title? I guess once you have visited The Catacomb Church in Coober Pedy, you will see the simplistic but effective way of adorning a place of worship to tie in with the local mining community. We were staying just over the hill from the church on Catacomb Road, so it... More
