A well kept church. We were welcomed in by friendly people, but just missed their morning coffee. An old established Anglican church that's worth a look.

A military church with history
Mar 2021
The Garrison church, also known as Holy Trinity Anglican Church and Hall, is of national significance and is in fact listed on the Heritage Register. It was built in the mid-1800's and served as a military church for a number of years during its early history. It also houses some military items. Nowadays it still functions as a normal Anglican church, however it is not actually open everyday, as we found out. It seems to only open about once a week for normal religious services, and remains closed for the rest of the week, unfortunately, particularly considering the fact it is located in such a well known and popular tourist area like the Rocks.

The Garrison Church is a colonial era church located in The Rocks Sydney. Services held each Sunday all welcome. Beautiful stained glass windows.

Always closed!

Been there three times in two weeks, morning and afternoon, weekdays and weekend, and the church was closed all times. Apparently they only open for their Sunday services, which should be enough not to consider the church a tourist attraction. Frustrating.

Movie fame

Lovely place. Plenty of military insignia to see on the walls. Some trivia for non-Australians like me: this church appeared in the movie Mission Impossible 2, in the religious parade scene. (Other Sydney landmarks, too, including the Bradleys Head Amphitheatre - check out that view!)

Reminded us of Tasmanian Churches

Tucked around a corner up the hil and through the tunnel from the Rocks tourist area on the corner of Lower Fort St and Argyle St is an early Anglican church finished in 1840. If you are into historic churches it's an easy walk.

Nice, little church
Aug 2017 • Solo
The church is the first military church of Sydney. It has interesting military memorabilia, The east window and the pulpit are quite nice.

It is at the rocks. It is close to the observatory. It is easy to find and located at a quiet neighbourhood.

There is no entrance fee.

Simple church rich in history
Jan 2018 • Family
Garrison Church is one of the oldest religious venues in Sydney. It is a nice place to explore Australia's often dark history.

Interesting old Church near the Rocks
Nov 2017 • Business
Just up from Argyle stairs, this is a simple church. It used to be used for soldiers but now it is a nice old Anglican parish church. Pretty understated as churches go, no-one was there the day I visited. It was nice, open, serene. Not particularly memorable or worth seeking out, but worth seeing if you are in the rocks or going the the bridge.

I enjoyed it, worth about a ten minute visit.

Gorgeous Church in a Gorgeous Part of Sydney
Dec 2017 • Solo
From the outside this delightful sandstone church is almost understated in architecture and is set in a very beautiful old part of Sydney. The Rocks and Sydney Observatory are very close by. I recommended the length of stay in the box below as under 1 hour but honestly, I think you should spend 2 or 3 hours walking around this very historic part of Sydney and the church.
Once you walk inside, it is simply sublime, I went on a Friday because I wanted to sketch for an international sketching group that I am part of and Craig, the minister very kindly opened up for me, I spent 5 hours inside, the ambience is so calming, although if you went on a weekend it is much busier, or there might be a wedding.
