Small picturesque church
Aug. 2020
Unfortunately, it was not open (not sure if due to Covid-19). I could have a good glimpse from the outside, and it has a lovely graveyard.

A modern church on a historic site.
Sep. 2019
Built on the site of the 546 AD monastery of St Columbas, the church is significant in the history of the area. There are many famous graves in the grounds. We didn't get inside to view the lovely stained glass windows..

5th Century History
Sep. 2019 • Couples
This is the site of the original Benedictines Abbey established by Augustine before he went to Scotland and established Iona.
Beautiful building a few hundred years old and while still having Su day services struggles with a small congregation.

Beautiful Historical Church
Jul. 2019
The church and grounds are lovely. Wonderful place to take a few minutes to stop and reflect. The stained glass windows and mosaic on the walk are worth the stop.

Steps off the wall
Aug. 2019
Stopped in for a few minutes to the visit the church and catch a glimpse of the past. It even smelled really old....

Just outside is an old cemetery if you are hoping to discover a few deceased relatives. There is a sign that has all the occupants listed so no need to wander in the actual cemetery.

There are some volunteers ready to answer questions or offer assistance.

Great stop along the wall stroll.

This little church is so well worth taking time to visit. It has a special ambience within its walls. Volunteers are very welcoming and knowledgeable of the Churches history

St Augustine's Church -A Gem
Jul. 2019 • Solo
This beautiful small church on Derry's Walls is a gem to come upon as you make your way along the City Walls and can step inside the lovely gateway into the cemetery and beautifully kept gardens - the colourful shrubs and flowers lead you into the small church. Lovely stain glass windows with memorials line the walls. At the altar area at the front of the church there is a beautiful tapestry which was done as as part of "The Big Weave" for the City of Culture Year 2013. People from all over got to be part of the tapestries done at the time led by the now Anglican Bishop of Meath & Kildare Pat Storey- locals and visitors from all round the world got to put a couple of stitches in place - it was great to be part of. The church also hosts concerts and other performances - over July August on Tuesdays lunchtime music from 1-2pm.

Amazing building

What a beautiful little church. We got talking.to the caretaker and he was very helpful, and proud, of his church. If you visit around 1pm or shortly after there is a cannon demonstration just outside on a little plaza beside the Walls

Often call in for quiet contemplation when out for a walk. Great free concerts at lunchtime on Tuesdays during the summer.

we popped in to this little church on our walk along the City Walls. A special peaceful place. There was a clergy member in the church who made us feel very welcome
