A beautiful serene setting off the road near the airport is only part of the reason to go and visit the Cottle Church. The other reason is the tremendous history associated with this landmark. The first Church in the Caribbean where those of European and African descent worshiped side-by-side, it was built by a wealthy plantation owner. When we lived on Nevis this was a always a great place to take the kids for a runabout and a picnic as well. Speaking of such, it can get hot if you are not used to the heat/humidity, so carry something to drink and a snack if you fancy tarting it up a bit. Great place for photographs. Enjoy!

Visiting the Cottle Church was moving. Cottle Church was the first in which slaves and free people worshiped together. Although ruined the church was atmospheric and there were good information boards.

We were taken to Cottle Church as a friend took us on a quick tour of the island. It is a place where people (and he – we hope) get married. It is just a few walls and arches but a charming place for a photograph. The history is interesting as it is the first place that black and white congregation worshipped together

Make sure you do a tour of the island and make this one of your stops. Lots of great history. This church was open to all people of the island.

This is the most peaceful and serene location on the island. You can feel the history as soon as you set foot inside the grounds of the church. There is lots of information to read about the history of the church and slavery. Anyone that is truly interested in the history of Nevis should visit this site!
