You must visit this church and see the stained glass windows. Especially when the sunshine pours through the coloured images. The Church is open at odd times, check before you walk up. (17:00 in the afternoon)

worth a visit but check opening times which were not as advertised. the main attraction is the stained glass; also the incongruous war memorial, commemorating those who went to Germany to fight against the allies.

The stained glasses are beautiful. This is a peaceful place for meditation or admiring the art. Mark that it's only open for one hour or two each evening during the week. Also, don't drive too fast up the hill - the road ends!

What a special little church! There is so much history around it. All the materials to build it was imported from Germany - even the sand! It overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and usually opens at 5pm, but the Buchters are flexible when a cruise ship...More

The church is open to visitors at certain times and usually not when our cruise ship was in port but they opened for us. It stands high on the hill above the town in keeping with its name as “The Church on the Rock” so...More
