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 place is very interesting and has a great example of how they create the air flow stacks up through the rock to the fresh air above. Take the time and pop in for visit.

Did as part of a tour, which was probably a good idea because we got a full commentary on its construction and its usage. Free to enter, donation would be accepted.

I'd imagine the acoustics would be good for a choir, but it was not as spectacular, visually as the Serbian Orthodox Church around the road a bit.

This was my favourite church in Coober Pedy due to its simple and unassuming character. We spoke to the kind pastor who explained the history behind the church beginnings.

This is a genuinely free activity and it's a nice touch. It has windows to the outside on one side . But worth a visit

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)
