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.

This church is not far out of town. The pastor is very interesting and is willing too take your photo under the air vents, rather amusing. Worth a look

It's free and they utilize an old mine. The beauty of the small churches are great. Please visit and enjoy the beauty.

If you don't expect a cathedral you won't be disappointed. It is not as spectacular as one might expect but it a unique place and has its own special ambiance. Worth having a look.

Loved it. Peaceful, quiet and cool. Worth visiting, just let yourself in and turn the lights on then off when you leave.

Definitely an interesting experience but the photo really shows most of what you see! We only needed 10 minutes to experience the church, however great photo opportunity and I guess it could be the basis of a good story or two!

Can you please advice trip advisor to address the issue of confusion of this church with St Pauls catholic church, many people are writing reviews of that church on this page. Thank you

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)
