I attended the Sunday 9:15 service and enjoyed the service very much. As an Anglican I felt at home with the service. The clergy and parishioners were very welcoming to the visitors and I would certainly attend again if the opportunity arises. When I travel I make an effort to attend church services as they are more interesting than just touring a church building.

The church is very beautiful both inside and out and very well-kept. I was shown around by one of the parishioners who was keen to show some key features including the original font from the 17th century. It is a shame that the graves in the churchyard have decayed over time and it wasn't possible to read the inscriptions, however it is definitely worth a look if you are in the area.

This is the oldest church on the island, located near where the first European settlers arrived. The architecture is breathtaking, with so many different shapes and features incorporated. I had hoped to visit on a weekday, however, our guide took us there on a Sunday morning, while they were having services, so I wasn't able to take pictures of the inside, which was a disappointment, as it was extremely beautiful.

Beautiful small church that is well kept and still used.

Grounds were being tended while we walked round and the gardeners were friendly and knowledgeable.

Absolutely gorgeous. They were preparing for a wedding when we toured the grounds. This is the oldest church in Barbados.

Visited this church and had a lovely guided tour by one of the congregation. Amazing what famous people had visited it. A lovely historical and interesting church, worth a visit.

This Church is absolutely beautiful. It was built in the early 1600s and is still a faithful community of worshippers. You simply must visit for a true sense of Bajan history.

Lots of history in this old church. Very well kept and obviously well loved by its congregation. We only got to glimpse the inside since it was Sunday and services were in progress.

This lovely church definitely was worth a stop. Our tour from Viking included a person who shared the history.

This is the oldest church in Barbados. Looks a bit ordinary on the outside, but it is nice inside. You can get tours to hear about the history. Worth including in your tour of Barbados.
