Church Leaders are encouraged to include a special time of prayer for the nation in their services over this weekend, Saturday 31st October and Sunday 1st November.


We have much to be thankful for as our nation celebrates its 39th year of Independence under the theme: “One Purpose, One Vision, One Nation.” We are grateful for the voyage of maturity that our country is experiencing. In spite of the socio-economic challenges the grace of God is still evident in the lives of our people.


Blessed 39th Independence to Antigua and Barbuda, to your church and families.

  1. Every day should be a Day Of Prayer. Ecclesiastical Commission, what do they really do.So many issues affecting many persons in Antigua and Barbuda.Not one word from them.Not a drum was heard.Now they are crawling out of their cozy zones.Talking about Day Of Prayer.Do we as a people need anyone to tell us to Pray.When to Pray and to whom we should Pray.I think not.

  2. The Barbudans ask that the prayers focus be on the removal from office the ones that commissioned the prayer day.

  3. Who is this Dr. Dorrset in the picture???? I note his divinity degree was not earned, but is “honourary”. What’s all that about? Who gave it to him and why and when??
