World’s Smallest Church?

Cross Island Chapel So is this really the world’s smallest church?  If you travel to the satire and humor site, you’ll find a feature called Mystery Worshiper.  The site is strongly biased towards Episcopalian and Anglican churches, but a few mega-churches pop up now and then.   The site is archived back to 1999, and they have visited nearly 1,600 different churches.   Each visit requires that an identical list of questions be answered, some of which are more superficial than others.    The church in the picture, Cross Island Chapel, is only accessible by boat, and checks in at approx. 29 square feet in size.

I’d be very grateful to hear if you could help. thanks & best, Kate (London, UK)
