Reminiscent of early Hawaii when life was more simple. You'll be reminded of beautiful New England Gothic Style architecture when you see her steeple due to the fact it was designed by Rev. Bailey who reined from New England. As a convert to Christianity, Queen Kaahamanu requested a permanent structure of worship be built in her name on this site... More

Christian services in both Hawaiian & English. BUT This iconic church is crumbling under the weight of unrepaired termite damage. If you are in the neighborhood, stop by, absorb the century + of history and leave a generous donation. BTW, I'm not a member of this church, just went to an event there.

Beautiful church. Attended Sunday services here many years ago. Cool on the inside even on hot days because of the thick stone wall. Congregation very friendly to visitors. Revisted to walk the lovely grounds and enjoy the view.
