The Gingerland Methodist Church was built in 1844 and is well known for its unique octagonal shape. Constructed from grey-hued stones the massive structure still holds services for its congregation.

The Methodists who came to Nevis believed that the African slaves, who were brought here to work the sugar plantations, should be afforded an education in the English language as well as religion.

One of the first things you’ll notice is the tower’s interesting open framework. The stone walls protect the grounds and the wooden shutters provide needed protection to its windows from possible hurricane and tropical winds.
