The Cottle Church And Integrating Caribbean Anglican Churches

In this now quiet corner of Nevis sits a simple structure that helped tear down institutionalized slavery across the Caribbean: The Cottle Church. Built in 1824, it’s the first Caribbean Anglican church where blacks and whites were meant to worship together. Like many stories from the time, the tale behind this church is an emotionally complex one, but one worth exploring to help grasp what makes our islands what they are today.

Uncommon Caribbean
is Steve and Patrick Bennett, two brothers from St. Croix changing the way people think about travels to the Caribbean by putting authentic aspects of island life and the region's unique cultural heritage in the spotlight ahead of the glitzy, one-size fits all tourist trap image popularized over the years.
