Bermuda Churches

There are large number of churches in Bermuda. In fact, number of churches in the island per capita is one of the highest in the world. You can't probably walk for more than 500 meters in the island without a sight of a church or a place of worship. Some say that from any place in Bermuda, if you close your eyes and throw a stone in any direction, you will probably hear the sound of shattering stained glasses. 
There are numerous Anglican, Catholic and Protestant Churches (Baptist, Methodist etc.) as well as those offering non-denominational services. If you are a cruise ship visitor and docked at the Royal Naval Dockyard in Sandys, and looking to visit a nearby church, then churches in Somerset would be nearest by bus. You can also reach Hamilton City easily by ferry which takes about 20 minutes.

While Catholic and Anglican churches are dominant, Methodism in Bermuda took its first roots in 1748 when the Methodist preacher George Whitefield visited the island. However Methodism picked up momentum after the Methodist preacher John Stephenson arrived in Bermuda in 1799. 
He was later jailed on the grounds that he did not have the required permission to preach. However that did not deter Stephenson and he continued to preach the Gospel through the bars of his cell to all blacks who gathered outside.

    Visitors' Reviews and†Comments

    Joanne Webster (September 2017) 
    Hello, I love reading about the many different churches and a bit of their history. †Thank you for sharing! I'm interested to know if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints have any presence on the island. I would love to attend meetings there on my planned vacation there. † 
    Appreciate any help you could give me. Thank you! 
    Raj (, September 2017) 
    Hi, yes there is a church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Bermuda. It is located on Wilkinson Avenue in Hamilton parish and right next to Crystal Caves entrance (15 Wilkinson Avenue, Hamilton Parish. Phone: 441 293 8597). You can reach by bus #1 or #3 from Hamilton City or St. George (will take about 30 minutes from either location) and get off at at Crystal Caves bus stop. It's a small church ... a pink building with white limestone gabled roof, and the entrance is right on the road. You can see the church from the road itself. Sacrament Meeting is at 10:30am, Priesthood relief Society at 12:40pm and Sunday School at 11:50am. Visitors are welcome. 
    Bob Ierardi (September 2013) 
    We will be docking at Kings Wharf on Sunday 10-13-2013 @11:00AM. We are trying to locate the nearest Catholic Church and to see if they have any services that would fit into this schedule? Thanks 
    Raj (, September 2013) 
    Hi, The Catholic church closest to Kings Wharf (dockyard) is St. Joseph's Church (43 Main Road, Somerset, Sandys, Bermuda. Phone: 441/234-2321). You can take bus #7 or #8 from the dockyard and get close to the church in few minutes. Sunday mass is at 9:30am, so you won't be able to join that on your day of arrival. 
    Another option is to take a ferry from the dockyard ferry dock and reach Hamilton (20 minutes) and then walk down to St Theresa's Cathedral which is also a Catholic church (13 Elliot Street, Hamilton, Bermuda. Phone: 441/292-0607). From Hamilton Ferry Terminal, it takes about 10-12 minutes walk to the church. Sunday mass times are 8:30am, 10am (Portuguese), 11:30am (youth mass), and 6pm. Saturday at 6:30pm. Daily masses are at 7am (Tuesday - Friday). 
    Nancy Kapanka (August 2013) 
    Years ago we found a small Scottish(?) church in Bermuda, at least the minister spoke with a very heavy Scottish accent. It was a short scooter ride from Astwood Cove, if that helps at all. We would love to try to find the church again when we return in Sept. My husband is not 80 and after more than 20+ visits to this lovely island I think this may be our last visit to Bermuda, and I want to try to fill our 9 days with as many good memories as possible. I was happy to read that Crystal Caves is open once again. Thank you for any help you can offer. 
    Raj (, August 2013) 
    Hi, It should be the Christ Church in Warwick parish which is a congregation of the Presbyterian church of Scotland. Astwood cove is located nearby in the same parish. Address: #96 Middle Road, Warwick (on bus route #8 that runs between dockyard and Hamilton). The church is located across Bellmont Hills Golf Course. They arrange for a return transport after the 11am service. 
    Melanie (July 2013) 
    I am planning a trip to Bermuda. Is there a Unitarian Universalist Church? Or anything similar? Warm regards. 
    Raj (, July 2013) 
    Hi, Unfortunately there is no Unitarian Universalist church in Bermuda, at least none to my knowledge.

    I am hoping you can tell me how to contact all of the Catholic Churches in Bermuda to see where my nephew Robert Forest Shanks was baptized as my sister-in-law cannot remember and her husband was stationed in Bermuda at the time. Any and all help would be appreciated as I am the Family Genealogist and would like to obtain a copy of when my nephew was baptized for the family record books. Thanking you in advance for your help

    We will be docking at the Heritage Wharf in May on a Sunday and was wondering what the closest Catholic Church would be and what time are the services? Thanks for any info. Thanks for a great website.... Gene 
    Raj (, February 2013) 
    Hello, St. Joseph's Church in Somerset (Sandys) is a Catholic church closest to the dockyard where Kings Wharf and†Heritage wharf piers are located. Barely few minutes by bus or taxi. Sunday mass is held at 9:30am. 43 Main Road Somerset, Sandys, Bermuda. Phone: (441) 234-2321 / 238-1784. Email: [email protected]
    Just for your information... This is now the oldest existing Catholic church in Bermuda. The Crawley family donated land, material and money in 1928 to build this small Gothic church. The later structural additions haven't followed the gothic designs though.

    I will be sailing to Bermuda for a three day stay and would like to find a catholic church possibly in walking distance from the Hamilton cruise terminal. I appreciate any information you can give me. thanks and blessings,
