The President's Welcome 


Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Welcome to the Jamaica Methodist District website. The Jamaica District is one of eight within the Methodist Church in the Caribbean and the Americas. I sincerely hope that as you visit this site you will be informed, inspired, motivated and encouraged on your journey of life.

Methodism came to the Caribbean in 1760 when the Hon. Nathaniel Gilbert, a layman and a former Speaker of the Antigua House of Assembly, began preaching and witnessing to his friends and slaves from the steps of his plantation house in Antigua. The Methodist Movement came to Jamaica on January 19, 1789 when the Rev'd Dr. Thomas Coke arrived at Port Royal, Jamaica. A few days later, in Kingston, he began preaching in a private house and then in a large hall belonging to Mr. Burn, a Roman Catholic.

Today there are 171 congregations and many institutions that are owned and operated by the Methodist Church.

As President of the Jamaica District it gives me great pleasure to declare the Jamaica Methodist District website re-launched and to invite all members, adherents and friends to visit the site and pass on this critical information to all family and friends.

Yours in the service of Jesus Christ ,

 

Rev'd. Everald Galbraith,
District President
