  • The church is very interesting because it is modern but has a very beautiful altar and a presbytery. We listened to the wonderful concert of the Royal Guard with interesting horns.  more »

  • I love the peaceful and traditional feel of this interesting juxtaposition of architectural styles: an old and beautiful remnant of the bombings of WWII, protected and integrated within a modern, but interesting concrete structure. I have attended a few services here over the years, and always enjoy the more orthodox approach to worship and the unapologetic support of the military establishment. In a world of contradictions, this delight of tradition offers an island hope and beauty.......🙂
  • It's a very nice place for an original Sunday service. It has a choir and a full military band to provide some excellent music, as well as a very interesting history and interior. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and the coffee/biscuits served after the service.
