The Church of Nazarene is a simply beautiful quaint blue church, recently renovated to increase the beauty of the building and to suit its tropical surroundings. This church and local Cape Verdean attraction is located in downtown Santa Maria, coined as the largest Wesleyan-holiness denomination in the world.
The Church of Nazarene is truly peaceful, with a somewhat charismatic atmosphere filled with people coming together to pray and worship. Members of the church are commonly referred to as ‘Nazarenes’ and open up the doors to locals and travellers alike for prayer on Sundays. People even gather outside of the church to sing praise, which brings a sense of togetherness during your travels in Cape Verde.
The worship here is something that can only be truly appreciated when you see it for yourself. If you’re interested in witnessing and experiencing this inspiring service for yourself, head down to the Church of Nazarene as early as possible; it fills quickly for mass which takes place for 70 minutes.
