Bethel Baptist Church

Bethel Baptist Church

The old city of Nassau is bordered to the south by a number of historic African townships, including Bain and Grants Town. These areas, generally known collectively as “over the hill,” were homesteads for the enslaved Africans in a segregated Bahamas. Bethel Baptist Church, which laid its foundations in 1790, more than forty years before the British Slavery Abolition Act, was the first over-the-hill church to be built on the island. It remains a prominent church in the community.
