Churches in Jamaica

I’ve always known that Jamaica has the most churches in the world, per capita. But just found out by researching that this fact is actually a Guinness World Record! Imagine that!

You can find a church on every single street corner it seems, and some of them are the most charming little structures ever!! There are so many different looking ones compared to our modern ones back home, I love taking pictures of churches in Jamaica.

I’ve never actually gone to church in Jamaica, which is odd because I attend every Sunday at home.  I’m not sure why I have a hang-up about going to one in Jamaica besides the fact that maybe I’m shy to go in alone.  When I live in Jamaica next year I would like to find one in my community and become a regular member.

This next church I could only IMAGINE what the view is like.  You can’t tell by this picture but the church is perched on a hilltop high above the Caribbean sea!  I spotted it when I was on a boat dock in the water below.  What a beautiful place to worship!
