“Seafarers and Traveller Re/treat”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Evocative of the history of seafaring from Ramsgate and very pleasant place to sit and meditate at anytime. Restorative and memorable.

“A moving place”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

A tiny little Church at the bottom of a long flight of steps. Something about the atmosphere here gives you goose bumps.

“Haven of peace”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Very interesting and well worth a visit. We were made very welcome by the lady on duty. This church is used as a place of worship by people, mostly sailors, from all over the world and is next to the harbour.

“Little gem”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

This little chapel provides a link to the past in contrast to the modern bustle of the Marina - a real gem and a nice quiet place to sit, there are also some interesting items to look at such as model ships and nautical memorabilia.

“Very Quaint”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

Worth a visit as a sailors church is unusual. It is set on the ground floor of a building that was used as a hostel many years ago. Now used by Sea Cadets and scouts.
