An Underground church named after the Catacombs in Rome. A place of serenity where week by week we tell others the great news that Jesus still forgives sin for those who seek him.

Free entry and very interesting underground church. There was no one around there seemed to be a beautiful element of trust.

Spend some time inside, perhaps not the most ornate of churches, it will give you the feel of being underground

We saw this Underground Church as part of a tour of Coober Pedy. Fascinating place, although not very large. There was another tour group there at the same time which made things a bit cramped. It was still good to see.

Worth the visit !!! Music plays during your stay so there is no oppressed feeling while in the cave.

Forget the religious aspect, go and have a look even if your not religious simply because you are there and get a feel for how the locals live, work & worship in this part of the country underground.

This is a very simple church, nothing fancy like stained glass or big statues, compared to other churches in the area.

Very quaint. Nothing fancy but it was very inviting. Loved the fact they kept it simple. Didn't go to a church service, only visiting.

After visiting the Serbian Church, I had high expectations. This was so much of a let down. It did not even feel spiritual. I love visiting churches, and so unique, underground ones. This felt like a pre school effort. Love the fact it is underground,...More

The Catacomb Church is quite separate from the St Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Coober Pedy. The Catacomb Church Anglican (i.e. Church of England)
