Moravians march through St Thomas

Social Share

All ten Moravian congregations in Barbados were represented yesterday afternoon in a march as Moravians celebrated 556 years of being established as a world-wide church.
The march started from Bunkers Hill, Shop Hill St Thomas where the first Moravian congregation was started in 1765 before later moving to Sharon in St Thomas in 1795. The cornerstone of the church building was laid in 1799.
Moravians marched through St Thomas districts of Shop Hill, Melrose, Arthur Seat and then on to Sharon Moravian Church where the celebrations continued with a worship service.
Those who took part in the march carried banners representing the various congregations around Barbados as they sang, danced and clapped to the music that was provided from a truck.
