I'm not religious, so my interest was merely from a historical perspective. The inside of the church is decorated with mother-of-pearl. In my opinion, it's a little gaudy (sorry to all Beagle Bay residents) but the community is reliant on tourists to ensure the building can be maintained and restored as needed, so make the effort to stop and see...

I visited here on a kimberley wild day trip and i just fell in love. Its a must to visit. With an altar designed out of pearl shells it is a sight.

A well kept church with local character .... the theme is Pearl Shells. It was touching to see how the local environment has been effectively used to blend into a church.

What a treasure in the middle of nowhere... We were ever so lucky to meet the current priest, on secondment from Africa. A lovely man who is so proud of his chuch and community... Please come down to Sydney!

A modest place of worship which in itself is refreshing. The services are similarly happy and uncomplicated, the choir are accomplished and the local congregation a great group of people. The clergy are happy, helpful and welcoming. Generally a good experience for a lapsed Presbyterian.

This was our second visit to Beagle Bay to look at the church and it is still a very special place. Would recommend a visit to anyone holidaying in Broome. The road Ito Beagle Bay can be a bit rough, so a high clearance or 4 wheel drive vehicle would be recommended. There is no cost to visit the church,... More

The mother of pearl church in the indigenous community north of Broome is touted as a highlight - and certainly there's a lot of mother of pearl inlaid and otherwise decorating the altar, the stations of the Cross, and so forth. It's more a curiosity than an inspiration - worth a cuppa stop on the way to Horizontal Falls, but... More

Amazing church. Wish I had read Di Morrissey's book Tears of the Moon beforehand so I could explore more and understand the significance of the place.
