Churches and Religious Services

Jekyll Island Churches
Churches

Some churches on the island share space. The Methodist church, for example, shares its building with Catholic and Episcopal congregations.

While the Jekyll Island churches have local congregations, they are used to serving the many visitors to the island. So don’t be shy about attending your preferred service.  Jekyll Sandpiper renters will find all the churches are on the west side of the island.

Historic Faith Chapel

Faith Chapel is a historic chapel in the Jekyll Historic District. Jekyll Club members built it in 1904, and they actively used Faith as a non-denominational chapel until 1942. Then the state of Georgia purchased it, along with Jekyll Island, in 1947.

The chapel is open daily for contemplation, at no charge. It is also open daily for historic tours. The Jekyll historic tours include a ticket for Faith Chapel, but you can also buy one separately for $5. In addition, St. Richard’s Episcopal Church holds services in the chapel on the last Sunday of the month, as well as Christmas Day and Easter Sunday.

You can also rent Faith chapel for weddings at a cost of $800 on weekdays and $1000 on weekends. Contact Clint Joiner, cjoiner@jekyllisland.com, (912) 635 – 4168, for more information.
