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.
