Beautiful church, an amazing piece of architecture. Do go inside as not what you'd expect from outside. Currently having much needed renovation. Lovely, friendly lady greeted us at entrance & gave us a short history of the place. Large congregation on a Sunday so great to walk passed & hear the singing.

From the outside the building is in desperate need of restoration but it has commenced on one side, and will look fantastic once completed. Inside it appears to be in great shape and is really beautiful and well worth a short visit and to make a donation to assist with the restoration. Friendly people will also provide a history leaflet... More

The oldest and largest wooden structure. Very interesting if for nothing else but the historical factor. Not really much to see, interesting.

This Anglican (Episcopal) cathedral was undergoing some renovation from outside, but the doors were open to the public. It is a spacious beautiful building where visitors are allowed to walk around and take photos. The attendant at the entrance was happy to receive guests; she gave me a pamphlet, which described all aspects of the church. She said that there... More

It is currently undergoing a $2 million refurbishment, and thus not looking at its finest, but the magnificent wooden building is a hallmark of Georgetown. It is a truly magnificent building, and the many plaques on the wall tell a tale of daring, disease and faith among the many early settlers; a "white" history, to be sure, but an important... More

Worth a look. Tudor-revival interior. Walking distance from hotels. Services 1290-1300 weekdays. Exterior fits with charming wooden Georgetown look

Enjoyable and would be an otherwise unremarkable church visit. I was there with my visiting parents and my mother spent about 45 minutes talking with one of the cleaners( never ending battle against the pigeons) and her granddaughter. One of the highlights of the trip for my mother
