Nice afternoon spent walking the grounds of this historic church. I was hoping to see inside, and those gorgeous stained glass windows, but it wasn't open. Still, lovely setting with the cemetery and Wesley Garden across the street.

Worth a visit. The grounds were lovely and well maintained. The interior of the church is small but spectacular. Beautiful stained glass windows and original woodwork.

It is in a beautiful, peaceful setting. The grave sites are both old and contemporary. Setting is with old beautiful oak trees and flowering shrubs.

The grounds here at Christ Church are absolutely stunning. The cemetery itself is well taken care of and there is a lot of history here. The detail within the church is fantastic and this should be a must stop for anyone to enjoy the peace and beautiful sights here.

This is a charming and intimate christian church where everyone is welcomed. Flowers beautiful except during Lent. Music inspiring with several choirs, bell choir and concerts throughout the year. I felt at home the first time I visited Christ Church.

Lots of history! Loved the tour. Hope the damage from Hurricane Mathew gets repaired soon. Mostly cemetery church was spared.
