We planned our visit to include Sunday worship and we were very happy with the service and building. The Hawaiian singing was beautiful.

Found the Church on the way to a museum nearby. The grounds have a cemetery for the family that donated the property for a church. Great place to visit and walk around, very nice and peaceful. Worth your time to stop and see.

This is a beautiful old church, although relatively simple in design (i.e. no large stained glass, etc.). Nice to visit if you are in the area, but what makes it truly come alive is the worship of it's people. Still has service at 9 am on Sundays in Hawaiian and English, which is moving and beautiful. Although a small congregation,... More

Apparently it is one of the oldest if not the oldest church in Hawaii. This is a reconstruction and not the original but it still is more than a hundred years old. Take a look inside if you have a bit of time

It's a lovely old church. Fourth one since the beginning and first church on the island. We were lucky enough to come by when it was open so we went inside and sat down and enjoyed the simple, auster, but compelling chapel. Do visit. It's lovely.

In a historical tour of Wailuku, this is essential to visit. Mom could walk to it from her home down the street.

What a beautiful church built in the 1800's. This is a quick stop must see. Old graveyard in the back with lots of history. Mi even climbed the huge banyan tree in the front for a cute photo. Great view in the tree till I saw the huge spider.

I have only admired from outside, but oh it is such a pretty church that I want to investigate further. The structure, the grounds, everything about it hold a reverence.

This is a beautiful old building with an incredible huge tree on its grounds. It reminds me of New England.

Beautiful historical Hawaiian church with an amazing spreading Monkeypod tree in the front. There is a park on the corner with a picnic table where you can lunch and watch the chickens and chicks chasing around the lawn. If you arrive in the 3rd Thursday of the month at 11 am, bring a lunch an listen to free Hawaiian music!... More
