A place of tranquility, peaceful and beautiful. A church of historic interest, the social center for the planters and families who first arrived and settled in St. James in the earlier years from the 1600's.

Oldest church in Barbados and still having services on Sundays. Tube organ still working and surroundings are breathtaking.

Whilst there is not a lot to see, it is worth popping in to read their poems, which will warm the heart of all visitors. Had I been around on a Sunday morning I would have attended a service as it felt very welcoming.

A beautiful, quaint church in the Caribbean. We attended a wedding there and is interesting to see the small differences to churches here in the Uk. Not as many as we thought, really very pretty and a church with modest character.

Really nice visit to a church from it's earliest English roots. Local docents passion is obvious, and the historical cemetery was a wonderful walk through the family histories. Make sure you hunt for the church's gargoyles!
