“Beautiful Old Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

At the north end of the Island, Christ CHurch isa wonderful historic church to visit. "Christ Church is set in tall, mossy grass under towering oak trees. The church grounds include a cemetery. Christ Church, one of the oldest churches in Georgia, was founded on St. Simons Island nearly 70 years after the island was first settled by English colonists. Worship has been continuous since 1736 in Christ Church Parish, established by English colonists at Frederica under General James Oglethorpe."

“Beauty and reverence.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We lived on SSI many years ago and was on a trip down memory lane with my husband when we found ourselves driving towards the north end of the island on Sunday. We started looking for Christ Church and once again felt the power of this little historic house of worship. There is beauty here that any tourist would enjoy and any history buff would love, but there is also a calm that I hold with reverence.
