I visited becausemy brother married here last year and it is a beautiful church and space. Wonderful to look around all the doors and windows were opened for all to visit, so different to back in the U.K. ,

St. James Parish Church was one of the few places on the island that we considered an essential visit, and we were so glad we went. After looking around on our own for a while, we were offered a tour by a very knowledgeable curator(?) We were joined by a Bajan schoolteacher and between the three of us our Q... More

It is wonderfully restored. Many period pieces, beautiful stained glass and an unusual and ingenious pipe organ

Stopped here as a part of our island tour. Being the oldest church on the island, there were lots of interesting historical stories about the place. After a walk, our guide brought out the rum punch and some kind of fried fishcake, was good eating!!

Oldest church on the Island riddled with history and interesting stories from the friendly church warden who was more than happy to take us around. Nothing to dislike

Popped into this oasis of calm on a stroll back from Holetown to our hotel. The church itself is the oldest on the island and has a feeling of calm and serenity. OK, it may not be as ornate as one might expect but to us it had a welcoming feel. On top of that it is surrounded by substantial... More

We enjoyed worshipping here on Palm Sunday. We were warmly welcomed. Be aware that if there is a 5th Sunday in the month, the service starts early, not at the posted time. Took a cab to the church and caught a bus on the return back to our resort.

This lovely, un-ornate Anglican church welcomed us to their 7:15 a.m. service, with a special visitor's order of service (no searching frantically for the right page in the prayer book or hymnal for visitors!). We were greeted by those near us during the sharing of the peace and felt truly at home, though we were far from our homes in... More
