Great building

This chapel still runs and has a huge amount of history. The building that it is in is very impressive and right on the harbour. Definitely worth a visit!

This is an amazing chapel - open all hours, offering a place of peaceful contemplation in all its simplicity. I have sat here many times, with my dog on my lap pondering on its history and times past as well as the importance of quiet spaces in our daily life.

A lovely little church with interesting models of ships and a very tranquil feel. Right on the marina tucked away next to the smack boys home.

I have visited this lovely chapel many times, whenever I am fortunate enough to be in Ramsgate harbour and have a spare hour to wander. If you have ever seen the 1956 movie Moby Dick, and the unforgettable scene of the church service presided over by Orson Welles, set in a seamans chapel decorated with the artifacts of the sea,...

If you have an interest in seafaring/ religious history then this is for you. If not, then the suggestion is you look to some of the other historic attractions Ramsgate has to offer.

I had the privilege of attending the Sunday evening service and left feeling blessed that there are still a few who support the wonderful evangelistic and outreach work that the congregation are involved in...seeking the lost souls and giving support where needed.

If you are coming in on a boat or walking around the harbour this is a lovely church to pop in to to say a prayer for someone, or just to reflect.

Peaceful and historic little church, along the harbour road. This was my second visit. It was at this church that I learned of The Pilots Psalm, a beautiful version of the 23rd Psalm. I chose this Pilot's Psalm for my mother's funeral as she, and my father, loved sailing, and my Dad was in the Merchant Navy. So, this little... More
