The Village Chapel of Bald Head Island

The Village Chapel is a place of worship. It stands as a visible expression of faith in God for the Island residents, their guests and visitors. The idea for a Chapel was originally conceptualized on Easter Sunday in 1984, at the first organized worship service of property owners held at the now extinct Bald Head Island Inn. The land adjacent to the Old Baldy Lighthouse was given for this effort by the George & Cynthia Mitchell family. Groundbreaking ceremonies were held on Easter Sunday, 1986 and the Chapel was completed in time for dedication on Easter Sunday, 1987. Clovis Heimsath, a Texas architect, designed the building in keeping with the nineteenth century Carolina coastal style. The one stained glass window, installed in the balcony, was designed by Marianne Heimsath, wife of the architect. It is the tripartite fish design: the three fish are in an equilateral triangle, which is the symbol for the Trinity, suggesting three equal parts joined into one. The inscribed brass medallions placed on the altar rail were used as a part of the fundraising effort. The windows behind the altar overlook Bald Head Creek, Middle Island and, in the distance, Bluff Island. Worship services, with seating for 130, are held each Sunday at 8:30 am with an additional 10:00 am service during the summer months. Communion is offered at both the 8:30 am and 10:00 am service the first Sunday of the month. Services are led by visiting ministers from the mainland who have been recommended by an Island property owner. Baptisms, weddings, memorials and other special services are scheduled through the Chapel office. The Board of Trustees sets the guidelines, policies and procedures to maintain the integrity of the Chapel. As a member of the Southport/Oak Island Inter church Fellowship, the Village Chapel is an active participant in community outreach. You are invited to worship with the community or to experience on your own the peace and love emanating from this most special place. Welcome!
