The early settlers of Barbados brought their Anglican religion with them. The first church of Bridgetown was the Church of Saint Michael, which was a wooden structure. It was built in 1641. Later in 1665 the church was rebuilt as a stone structure and dedicated. The church suffered serious damage by the hurricane of 1780 and was destroyed. The new church was totally erected in 1789 and it is much the same way as it is today.
