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.

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.

We enjoyed our visit to the Catacomb Church at Coober Pedy. I have visited Grand Cathedrals in Europe and the Christal Cathedral in the US and that's fine but I love the simplicity of the Catacomb Church. Although I wasn't able to attend a service...More

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

A quick visit to check an underground church. A very nice interaction with the minister, some interesting trivia about the church was shared.

Stopped here for a few minutes and spoke with local Pastor Jeff about the construction of the church and its name and symbol. Loved it!

The minister showed us how it started originally as a dugout but the church purchased it in the early part of digging it out so it was completed especially for the church

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)
