The church's interior is simple, but beautiful, with exposed cedar beams (prior to the blight which virtually annihilated Bermuda's cedars in the 1940s and '50s, the wood was considered inexpensive and those who could afford to favoured more expensive, imported woods. Today, the endemic wood is scarce, priceless, and proudly displayed in those homes which have it). The font of the church is 500 years old, older than the settlement of Bermuda. The walls of the church have commemorative plaques on the inside, and there are gravestones set in the outsides, those of the notables who were considered worthy enough to be buried under the church floor, such as the printer of Bermuda's first newspaper (the Bermuda Gazette), Joseph Stockdale, and Governor George James Bruere, who died in office in 1780.

The sentence chronic with the last assize,
Start running backwards with its timely lies,
I might have time to live the love I say....”
