Welcome to Central Union Church



Please be careful when walking in front of Atherton Chapel.
The concrete walkway has become uneven. 

We are waiting for the estimate from a contractor. 
The repair is of
top priority and
we are looking to get it done in a week’s time. 

In the meantime we have marked the area with a cone.  

Please be careful!


Kapiolani Medical Center Traffic Alert

On Monday, January 12, KMC construction
started a new activity in the back near the fire lane entrance.

 This activity will continue for roughly two weeks
with added traffic being concrete trucks and a concrete pump.

 They will add an extra parking attendant
at the entrance of the fire lane
to assist with both pedestrian and vehicle traffic. 


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.
