A Christian Conference and Retreat Center Overlooking the Frederica River On beautiful St. Simons Island, Georgia
Epworth offers a wide variety of accommodations and facilities to meet the needs of our guests attending retreats and conferences, as well as individuals on vacation.
From Epworth, England To Epworth By The Sea... Epworth By The Sea is named in honor of the boyhood home of John and Charles Wesley, founders of Methodism. In 1784, John Wesley tenderly recalled his home by writing in his famous journal, "I rode to Epworth, which I still love beyond most places in the world." Though he is said to have ridden 250,000 miles and preached 45,000 sermons, Epworth still held his heart.
Today, the people who visit our Epworth tell us they, too, love this place beyond most places in the world. We pray that this special Christian Retreat Center will hold your heart as well!
Lovely Lane Chapel was constructed in 1880. The magnificent stained glass windows are irreplaceable pieces of Old English Art Glass. Because of the historic charm and natural beauty of the chapel, very little decoration is required. The appealing entrance to Lovely Lane Chapel provides a beautiful backdrop for the bride to begin her walk down the aisle... her entrance is framed by magnificent stained Old English Art Glass windows.
