Church on Tuesday



Christ Episcopal Church is located on St. Simon's Island, Georgia.  Worship has been continuous here since 1736.  It is one of the oldest churches in Georgia.  

The church grounds hold a cemetery with unmarked graves dating back to 1796.  Marked graves start with the date of 1803.  I have visited this church twice in the past couple of years.  Both times I have missed the inside visitation hours.

Not to worry, I shall return.

  1. Michelle, I can see why you enjoy returning, this church is lovely. I lived in Georgia for two years, but never made it down to St. Simon's Island. Thanks for sharing and I hope that you will be able to stop by again.

  5. Now that is what a church should look like. Overall, I think the 'Piscopalians build the best-looking churches of all the "protesting" groups.

  13. Good morning Michelle!:) Thank you for sharing this beautiful old church, which is in a lovely setting. Some of those trees look pretty old too. I like the lamps on each side of the path, and the manicured lawn, which you captured so well on camera.:)

  17. What a beautiful and pristine church. I do so enjoy seeing an old cemetery in churchyards such as this and we have several around the area where I live too. I actually live only a few miles from an old church and cemetery that had members (and slaves) connected with the history of Roots. Many of the unmarked graves are where some of the slaves were buried. I love learning the history behind these places. I hope this finds you almost ready for Christmas! Have a wonderful holiday season!

  20. Hi Michelle, There is something about churches ... they are one of my favorite subjects for photography. You did an excellent job on this photo ... the way you framed it up and the angle of the lighting ... just wonderful. Thanks, as always, for sharing.
