One purpose in conserving the site has been to make it accessible for the public to enjoy its tranquility and to appreciate its significance.
Visitors can learn about its story and about the period in which it was built from the displays in the pavilion close to the ruin.
The church and its grounds are also available for religious ceremonies such as weddings and baptisms as well as for school and community group picnics. No charge is made is for holding these events but it is expected that the grounds will be left clean of any debris after the event.
For weddings and events sponsored by or made through commercial organizations or hotels a donation of US$200 is requested towards the upkeep of the church and the preparation of the grounds for the event. Cheques should be made payable to the Nevis Historical & Conservation Trust (Cottle Church) at the First Caribbean International Bank (a/c 1122633), Charlestown, Nevis and given to a contact below.
The main gate to the site will be opened by a Trust representative to provide vehicular access for the delivery of chairs, tables etc. Vehicles are not to be parked in the church grounds.
Visitors who would like to use the site are asked to contact Jenny Lowery (email@example.com).
