Old Devonshire Church

The Old Devonshire Church was one of the first churches built on Bermuda. The church itself was destroyed twice, first in 1715 by a hurricane, and again in 1970 by an arsonist. Today, the church is fully operational and guests can come take part in communion, or they can simply appreciate the limestone walls and palm trees from the outside.


Most people go to the church just to appreciate the historic building and beautiful appearance. However, you will also be able to take part in the services offered by the church if you so wish.
