St. James Parish Church is the oldest church in Barbados. We visited on December 24th. A man was playing the organ, preparing for the Christmas services. Otherwise the church was absolutely empty.

Welcome to

St. James Parish Church

Barbados, West Indies

St. James Anglican/Episcopal Church stands on the oldest piece of consecrated land on the island, often known as “God’s Acre.” The first settlers landed on February 17th, 1626 at Holetown, adjacent to the church and the settlement there increased rapidly. A place of worship was needed to be erected and by 1628 a wooden church was built on this site. It was replaced by a local coral-stone building in the early 1680’s which is substantially the one still in use.

Your interest, prayers and financial support are greatly appreciated.
