Evangel Tabernacle

In the year 1950, when the small village named Melrose was nestled amongst the cane fields, a number of open-air meetings were conducted by Evangelist Alonza Roach. From this effort, some forty persons were saved and committed their lives to God and His service. After acquiring a house which was later remodelled into a church, the group immediately became affiliated to the United Holy Church of America. The church grew, ministering to the spiritual needs of this growing community. At one point, Elder Kenneth Harewood served as pastor of both this and the Mt Zion Church at the same time.

Elder Harewood was succeeded by Elder FitzGerald Kirton whose role in the history of this church was significant. He was the man God used to acquire the next building that Evangel Tabernacle would call a place of worship. In December 1986, the membership proudly marched into their new wall edifice. On October 1, 1989 Pastor (now Elder) FitzHerbert Kirton, son of Elder FitzGerald Kirton, took over pastoral duties at the church. This effervescent young man is still the Pastor and his vision and dedication to the ministry continue to impact on the church and the community. This church nurtured three of the current Pastors of our Barbados District: Bishop S. Patricia Holder, Elder Franklyn Smith and Elder FitzHerbert Kirton. Today, in what is now a bustling community, this church is committed more than ever to reaching the lost and bringing the good news of Jesus to our nation.
