An Underground church named after the Catacombs in Rome. A place of serenity where week by week we tell others the great news that Jesus still forgives sin for those who seek him.

Did as part of a tour, which was probably a good idea because we got a full commentary on its construction and its usage. Free to enter, donation would be accepted.

I'd imagine the acoustics would be good for a choir, but it was not as spectacular, visually as the Serbian Orthodox Church around the road a bit.

Small church in side of the hill. Worth a quick if you have the spare time. look just for the underground thing. Free.

This was my favourite church in Coober Pedy due to its simple and unassuming character. We spoke to the kind pastor who explained the history behind the church beginnings.

This is a genuinely free activity and it's a nice touch. It has windows to the outside on one side . But worth a visit

Looks like a cave dug out by the happy clappy brigade. Horrid plastic chairs inside do nothing for the ambience.

We walked in the door on a Monday and were met by the priest. He was delighted to point out some of the features and even some of the best ways to take the photos. Has a lovely atmosphere and seems still well used,

Thank Sue S

Can you please advice trip advisor to address the issue of confusion of this church with St Pauls catholic church, many people are writing reviews of that church on this page. Thank you

The Catacomb Church is quite separate from the St Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Coober Pedy. The Catacomb Church Anglican (i.e. Church of England)
