Walked up to the church from the Cruise ship terminal and shopping area. reminiscent of many old English churches. War memorial and attractive stained glass. When I visited there were pink ribbons decorating the pew ends for breast cancer awareness.

This was part of our drive by tour and we were given the history of the building. We stopped to take pictures since the building is so beautiful.
