Central Union Church, organized in 1887, 
traces its roots to the Seamen's Bethel, founded in 1833.

The Bethel began the earliest regular church services
in English in the Hawaiian Kingdom.

In 1924, Central Union Church,
also known as the "Church in a Garden",
moved to its present location on Beretania Street.

90 years ago this May,

Central Union dedicated
the new Sanctuary on the new property,
moving from a cramped and noisy downtown location
to the beautiful and spacious location we enjoy today. 

This move, initiated and shepherded
by a quite remarkable pastor,
was the crowning achievement of
The Rev. Albert W. Palmer during his
too-short seven-year pastorate in Hawaii.
