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.

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,

This church is not far out of town. The pastor is very interesting and is willing too take your photo under the air vents, rather amusing. Worth a look

A great deal of effort has gone into this structure......dug into the side of a hill and down. It is quite unique and the flood of light through the back windows creates a different atmosphere every time. It is still and quiet and really a...More

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)
