It is an interesting contrast (from the cathedral basilica to the mission church, which should have masses there because the parking is so much better than the cathedral.

I attend services here whenever possible. It is a magnificent building, the northwest corner of the church holds a small museum of the Flagler's-nothing much but family Bible, birth and death certificates, that sort of thing.

After hearing so much about the church that Flagler had built in just under a year, we decided to see what all the excitement was about. Memorial Presbyterian Church did not disappoint. Both the Old Tyme Trolley and Red Train stop at the church, so access is easy. As others have noted, a modest $1 donation is requested (but not... More

I like the decor, the lay out. Also the memories and the reason it was built, by a father in honor of his daughter and grand daughter. Inspirational.

Spend 10-30 minutes in this unusual Presbyterian Church. It looks more like an ornate Catholic church and Presbyterian. For a $1 donation (only a suggestion) there is someone to answer all questions and give a quick narrative about the church. Glad we stopped.

An interesting story behind the inspiration and a beautiful building. Convenient location to visit. If you're following Flagler history, a must see.

It is visually distinct from the outside (although it cannot compete with many European cathedrals) and the grounds are beautiful. However be aware that it closes pretty early (3:45pm) so I would say to put this on your early list. Unfortunately my wife and I did not get to the church until about 4pm and the doors were locked. A... More

We've walked by this several times and marveled at the exterior but on this trip, decided to go inside after reading TA reviews. The reviews do it justice. The interior is beautiful and mirrors Venetian churches. Mr. Flagler built this church and spared no cost. Beautiful stained glass windows, marble and mosaic floors, mahogany pews and doors, bronze chandeliers and... More

This church was stunning! There was great history provided inside, but just walking the grounds was worth the stop! It is a must during a visit to St. Augustine.
