to Our Church

Welcome to the Webster Memorial United Church, the lead congregation of the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands (UCJCI).

Webster is a diverse congregation, with members and adherents drawn not only from various parts of Kingston and St. Andrew but also other parishes of the island, including St Thomas, St Catherine, and even from Clarendon and St Ann.

About Us

The first Pastor, the late Rev. J.A. T Beattie, led the first official congregation on May 5, 1941, at the home of Margaret Stuart at 51, Half Way Tree Road.

Margaret’s home, then called “Iona House,” was where the first Church services were held, until lack of space, called for re-location to open air worship under a large ‘Guango tree’ or a ‘Lignum Vitae’.

Sunday, May 11, 1941, when the congregation met for its first Communion is considered as the official start of our Church.
