Beloved Church Steeped in History

A walk in the beautiful grave yard is something to behold. This whole area is a history lesson! The little church takes you back in time.

I first visited this church with my family as a teenager on a family vacation. My mother, sister and I had just read Eugenia Price's novel, The Beloved Invader, and were anxious to see the church that played such a prominent role in the book. This was probably my fifth visit to St. Simon's and Christ Church, and it was... More

Beautiful historic church with interesting graveyard. I could have spent hours just reading the tombstones. So much history in such a beautiful and peaceful setting. A must see if you're touring the island.

Must see! This is the inspiring and educational journey to the history of St. Simons Island and it's inhabitants. Just walking through the graveyard will tell you so much about what went on during the life of the island. Amazing and absolutely beautiful place!

Though the church is not the original church, the cemetery is very old and worth a visit. The grounds are pleasant and a visit following a visit to Ft Federica makes this special.

The John Wesly Museum is fantastic! The museum curator opened the facility on a day when it is normally closed. My family and I were extremely grateful, the information from the museum is aiding me in completing my writing project about Francis Asbury. The Asbury Triptych Series incorporates much of Methodism's early history. The opening book, Black Country, was greatly... More

This is a beautiful old church with a lot of history. The tour is definitely worth doing as the tour guides really know the history of the church. The grounds are really lovely.
