The only sound church on Antigua is in the small village of Liberta, so named because it was the first settlement of the newly liberated slaves. On the map, it is between All Saints and Tyrells.
Attendance is in the 60's, with a good mix of ages and lots of children. They don't have a "full-time preacher" but several of the men take turns--Milton, Hilroy, and others. Yes, they've had their problems (as all churches do) but things are looking better than they have in some years. Transportation is a problem so a couple of the brethren have vans and pick up those who need it.
