Anglican Church: Port Antonio Attractions & Sightseeing, Jamaica

Anglican Church


This stone and brick building was erected in 1895 on the direction of the Colonial Secretary. It consists of two storeys and has an upper verandah both at the front and the rear of the building. It is fenced round by an ornate iron baluster and is supported by columns of cast iron work made by William MacFarlane and Company of Glasgow, Scotland.

The Anglican church has been serving the parish of Portland for over 161 years. The red and white brick building commands attention, its beauty and sturdiness has defied the hands of time.

Tall windows provide both light and refreshing breeze to the interior. The three–storey, rectangular shaped building is completed by a belfry and clock. The modest interior has a brass lectern of note. The baptismal font is a study in decorative artwork. The present congregation is 650, although the church can hold 1500.

Soon after its erection the Parish Council obtained use of the lower section of the building in exchange for another building they used on Harbour Street.

A plaque on the wall inside the building bears the message to the Governor from the Secretary of State for the Colonies, dated November 16, 1918, after World War I.
