Did you Know? (Sunday, March 24, 2024)

Bishop Aubrey Spencer was succeeded in 1870 by Bishop Reginald Courtenay. Bishop Courtney faced the challenges of disestablishment and disendowment, as all subventions to the Anglican Church in Jamaica were terminated by the British Parliament. With this change, the established church in Jamaica, was restructured by its first-ever Synod in 1870. New administrative and financial structures/systems were implemented to enable the Church to become self-financing, incorporating the laity. The architect of the new financial administration was Rev. Enos Nuttall, who became Bishop of Jamaica in 1880. This year, our Diocese convenes for its 153rd synod.
