Nothing shows the south better than this church! They offer services and have an amazing graveyard with names you'll recignize from your history books. Beware, it's believed to be haunted.. A must see treasure of the island!

The last time I was here (about 30 years ago) I had just finished reading Eugenia Price's trilogy about St. Simon's Island and felt I was visiting a part of my family as I looked at the tomb stones. This time I just enjoyed the peace and beauty of the place. Had forgotten a lot about the books but after... More

This beautiful old church was built in the 1800s, after the original one was burned during the Civil War. The Wesley's (John and Charles) preached on the grounds of this church during their brief stays in America. The church yard (graveyard) is one of the attractions of this old church property. Eugenia Price wrote several books about this area during... More

A trip to Christ Church is an hour well spent. We were fortunate enough to arrive when the church was open and someone was there to answer questions. I don't know if our timing was good or this is a regular occurrence. The church is beautiful and has a rich history. After spending time in the church walking the grounds... More

This is one of the most tranquil settings that you'll find. Just walk in sit down and start looking around at the beauty. Great short trip for young kids as long as the parents are nearby to keep them on the paths. Bring your camera.

We love to visit this site every visit to the Island! It is such a wonderfully historic church with some actual history recorded in the Eugenia Price novels. Beautifully landscaped lawns make this a great place for vacation pictures! Don't miss this!

Lovely little church. Visited after Colonial Tour to see cemetery and church. Captain Rod and told us the story behind the Dodge family and we were interested in seeing the church.

We always go visit this church. Go inside and chat with the docent to learn the history and see the beautiful stained glass.

This is wonderful. For visitors and locals alike. Plan to slow down and enjoy the church, the grounds, the cemetery. Especially beautiful in spring when the dogwoods and azaleas are in bloom. In winter, the camellias are gorgeous. Beautiful stained glass windows.

This is one of the most historic and beautiful churches you will see in the state of Georgia. It is not big or gaudy in any way but is quite moving and interesting considering it's age and handcrafted construction. We were so fortunate to have a lady who works there as a guide of sorts to educate us on the... More
