“A really friendly church!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

A lovely church, which is in a pretty building, but that is outshone by the welcome that you'll receive. I recommend sticking around at the end and having a chat, even if you're just visiting. Lots of lovely people!

“The English church in Naples”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Originally gifted to the English community by Garibaldi in recognition for their support, this is a classic Victorian church. The type you would find in most English towns. Only this is Naples, and that is what makes it so special. It's only open on a Sunday morning - for Holy Communion at 10.00, but any visitor, whatever their religion, is guaranteed a warm welcome.

The style is distinctly English and American - Church of England and Episcopalian - but whatever the background of the congregation - whether civil or military - it joins in worship as one - a Christian community. It's not stuffy, fussy, bossy or precious - it's just a happy place for good, honest worship.

The church has a small and exquisite choir. To hear this choir is special, it creates music of great beauty, transcending the cacophony of this fabulous city of Naples.

The vicar is Father Kingsley Joyce - make sure you speak to him, he epitomises the warmth of the place.
