PBS REPORTS A ‘FIRST’ IN THE CARIBBEAN

5th September 2019

A parish church on Grand Cayman, the largest of the Cayman Islands – a British Overseas
Territory – is the latest to join the Prayer Book Society. The church is the society’s first corporate member in the Caribbean.

St Alban’s Anglican Church in George Town – the capital of the Cayman Islands and a
popular port of call for cruise ships – is a frequent user of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer
during services, including Morning Prayer and the main Sunday service of Holy Communion,
reports the rector, the Rev Christopher Pierce.

‘Our services are popular with local Caymanian people as well as expatriates from the UK,
USA, Canada, Jamaica, Ireland and India who make up our congregation,’ he explains.

‘St Alban’s Anglican Church is the only one on Grand Cayman which uses Prayer Book
services so we see ourselves as a PBS flagship in the West Indies.’

He added: ‘As a congregation of Anglican Christians adhering to the historical teachings of
the Bible, the Creeds, The Thirty-nine Articles of Religion and the Book of Common Prayer,
we are all about making disciples of Jesus Christ. It is our mission!’

Ordained in 1996, the Rev Christopher Pierce served in the Anglican Cathedral of St John
the Divine on Antigua and in the benefice of Clondehorkey with Cashel in County Donegal in
the Republic of Ireland before taking up his post on Grand Cayman in 2018.
