This beautiful old church is an interesting place to visit especially if you have read about it's history. A stroll through the centuries old oaks and into the well manicured cemetery gives one a sense of peacefulness and tranquility.

This is a beautiful historic church and local landmark. I'm not really much for visiting cemeteries but the stones in this graveyard tell an amazing local history.

I love Christ Church. So much history there. Beautiful setting! The church has a daily service at 5:30pm.

This church has a lot of history and is set on beautiful grounds. Does not open till the afternoon so if you want to go inside make sure you go later in the day.

There's nothing to dislike about Christ Church- except for the GA mosquitos. ;) The grounds are BEAUTIFUL and graceful, lush and peaceful. I've been a fan of the history of this place and the island since I was a little girl, and it's always so cool to get to see the things and graves of the people whom I grew... More

There is a nice story behind the building of this church and the minister and his late wife. Beautiful building . A docent is inside selling cookbooks. Tour the grounds and look at the cemetery. There is a lot of history there.

We went to Christ Church as part of a trolley tour. The tour guide shared some great history about a former pastor, and various folks buried there. Although a cemetery, it was a beautiful place. We did not tour inside, although inside tours are allowed at certain times on certain days.

I have visited Christ Church twice now because, not only is Eugenia Price, one of my favorite writers buried there, but also because, at any time of the day or early evening it is so peaceful and beautiful underneath the moss draped old trees. I also found it made Eugenia's historical fiction books about this area come to life.

During our stay in GA this year we were able to attend Palm Sunday and Easter Services at Christ Church. It was very meaningful. We visit Christ Church on every visit to SSI at least once. The minister is awesome and though relatively new (1 year) everyone thinks he is wonderful and we do too. The church quaint, cozy and... More

The Christ Church is a must visit for visitors to the island. It wasn't open on the day we visited, but we enjoyed walking the grounds. Great trees and landscaping throughout the property. It seemed odd that a church was the #1 attraction on St. Simon's Island, but we are glad we visited. Christ Church is an easy 15 minute... More
