Bishop's Message

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

On behalf of the clergy and laity of the Jamaica District of the Methodist Church in the Caribbean and the Americas (MCCA), I welcome you to our website. The Jamaica District is one of eight Districts within the (MCCA) where we strive to spread scriptural holiness throughout our lands. I sincerely hope that as you visit this site you will be informed, inspired, motivated and encouraged on your journey of life and service of God and nation.

Methodism began in Jamaica on January 19, 1789 and today there are 172 congregations, more than 100 schools and other institutions that are owned and operated by the Methodist Church. Through this website we are seeking to respond to the needs of a changing society while holding to our basic beliefs in the glory, majesty and the love of God. As President of the Jamaica District it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the site and ask that you send us an email with your thoughts and concerns so we all strive to strengthen God’s work through the people called Methodists

Yours in the service of Jesus Christ,
Bishop the Rev Everald Galbraith,
District President
