Gospel Vacations

Gospel Vacations

The island of Barbados, surrounded by clear, blue waters has its own appeal. As a destination, it touches many people in different ways.

 

Music is seen as a healer as is the genre of gospel music, the varieties of which are as diverse as the islands in the Caribbean chain. Barbados is home to many religious denominations which co-exist in relative harmony and respect. So, whether on vacation, business or on island to attend a specific religious conference or meeting, one can worship freely at the place of your choice.

 

So, what about planning a specific gospel vacation?? Well, that is certainly possible!! Many of the churches and denominations plan and execute different concerts or recitals year-round. If it is an entire series of activities which you are looking for then, special mention must be made of the annual Gospelfest right here in Barbados. Started back in 1993, the event which consists of a week of varied services, concerts, Christian comedy and discussions is multi-denomination and continues to grow in strength, popularity and attendance year on year.

 

Promoted locally and internationally, Gospelfest is held in May annually and if this is the type of vacation you are seeking, then it can certainly be placed on your personal calendar. Since its inception, the stages and venues of Barbados have been graced with the likes of Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams and Judy Jacobs. Combine these with the tremendous local and regional talent such as Sister Margarita Marshall, Promise and Joseph Marshall and the result is phenomenal.

 

Outside of this highlight on the Barbados calendar, the island, with its range of quality accommodation and meeting venues and activities, is quite suitable for planning religious seminars and enjoying the island simultaneously.

 

Do consider Barbados an option when planning a gospel vacation!
