As was Desmond Tutu, any from the British Royal Family and filled with locals. The tour, about 1/2 hour and $5, is very interesting and a good overview of religion in Colonial times. Highly recommended.

Like taking a step back in time. We were lucky enough to witness a wedding taking place during our visit. Always a happy occasion.

This church was established in the 1700's. The tiny cemetery as you walk in has so much history of the Colonial settlers. We saw a grave as early as 1707!! Most stones are so worn it is difficult to read!! Inside the church the pews are in the original design as boxes, and you when visiting you will learn the... More

The guides are very knowledgeable and take pride in presenting this little Newport gem. You should plan on making a visit if you would like to know more of the history of Newport, besides the mansions.

As you would expect, this is a beautiful colonial era church that was fully restored about 30 years ago but retains its historical aesthetics. As with our visit to Touro Synagogue, the tour guide really made the history of the church come alive. She was an active parishioner, too, which gave a real authenticity to the information she shared. Fascinating... More

Not to be missed if American and British history is of interest to you. Some famous people worshipped here and their presence is commemorated in pew signs and fabulous stained glass windows.

Loved the wood finish. The white weather board was well maintained and the church itself in a higher imposing position over the harbour. We didn't go in but appreciated the outside on our walking tour.

My father was rector from 1954-1971 - the church as been thoroughly updated structurally and restored with handicapped access. The tour is wonderfully informative with volunteers, the campus including the Mia Lin designed Queen Anne Square, Honeyman Hall, the Goelet garden and original cemetery looked fantastic. It was a great moment to revisit an important 18th century building and a... More

For a voluntary, suggested donation of $5 (yes, that's $5!), you get an exceptional tour of a very historic structure! Our docent, Harle Tinney, was an exceptional guide explaining the fascinating history of the church! A highlight was getting to sit in the pew used by both George Washington and Queen Elizabeth during their respective visits! The stained glass windows... More
