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.

Not originally a church, but the conversion has worked and is a wonderful peaceful place to visit. A typical Protstant place of worship (no adornement) but the use of local ingredients has been very skillfully done.

A simple but beautiful underground church is worth a visit. Using natural timber branches for the podium and alter, reminding me of the first Christians who may have met in similar surroundings.

We enjoyed visiting this church. As we were looking around the pastor came and had a nice chat. He was lovely to chat to n wouldn't let us leave without taking a awesome pic of the wind tunnels

A truly interesting visit. The pastor came out and spent a lot of time having a chat, helping take photos, explaining the significance of symbols in the church and generally being very hospitable and genial.

As this church is underground its cool and pleasant within. The interior is extremely quiet, nicely decorated.

This is a wonderful experience and relates itself to the catacombs of Rome in the first and second century. A bit of a stretch, but you can sit and imagine something of that experience. Worth seeking out.

Not really into churches but the alter here blew me away, love it. Wasn't too sure on the underground part of things but it was pretty spacious in there. Also books you could have & donate if you did take any.

This little underground church has a very simple interior with a welcoming feeling and is a great example of a dugout.
