The Anglican Church of Bermuda is as much a part of our Bermudian culture as the beat of the snare drum from the neighborhood Gombey troupe; or the refreshing taste of a sweet loquat in season. In fact, the Anglican Church has been a part of the Bermudian way of life from the very beginning. Aboard the Sea Venture on that fateful journey in June 1609, was a Priest of the Church of England, Rev’d Richard Bucke. Thus the ties between Bermuda and the Anglican Communion have a long, rich history.
As the national religious body for the beautiful island of Bermuda, the Anglican Church hopes to offer the same tranquility, serenity and peace that can be found in the scent of salt water, the view of the sunset and the sweet singing of the bluebird. We welcome you into a safe and Godly environment, where a love for Jesus Christ is supreme and service to others in the power of the Holy Spirit is paramount.
The Anglican Church of Bermuda is a single diocese consisting of nine parishes (fourteen churches, in all, including the Cathedral) in Bermuda.
The diocese is “extra-provincial”, but aligned to the Province of Canterbury in England. The current Bishop of Bermuda, based at the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity in the City of Hamilton, is the Rt Revd Nicholas Dill who was ordained bishop in May 2013.
Among its Parish churches is St. Peter's Church, in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of St. George's Town. St. George's is the oldest English town in the New World, and St. Peter's is the oldest Anglican, and the oldest Protestant, church in the New World.
The nine parishes are currently served by fourteen clergy who would be delighted to welcome you to church services, to offer spiritual counsel or to explore what it means to be a Christian. Click here to discover who to contact.
