Interesting for a quick look around and in a pretty setting. One of the members of the church was very friendly and welcoming and was keen to point out where Ronald Reagan and Nancy had sat when they visited!

We attended a service at St. James and it was both welcoming and a warm example of the hospitality of Barbadian parishioners. While somewhat "old school" in presentation, it was also relaxed with a warm Caribbean flavor.

We visited the church one afternoon. A church on the site dates back to the 1620's and was open for us to walk around. Modern statuary, stained glass and mosaic works add to the ambience of the church and its grounds.

The oldest Anglican church on Barbados. A delightful little church in lovely grounds. Of particular note are the two wonderful stained glass windows, one very traditional and one much more modern.
