Church warning as patriarch is laid to rest


Religious icon and patriarch of the Spiritual Baptist movement in Barbados Archbishop Granville Williams has been laid to rest.

He was buried in an elaborate ceremony punctuated by pomp and circumstance unprecedented in the history of Barbados.

His final resting place is a mausoleum on the grounds of the Sons of God Apostolic Spiritual Baptist Cathedral at Ealing Grove, Christ Church, a few steps away from where he once lived. 

Hundreds of Spiritual Baptists from Barbados, the Caribbean and internationally attended the service, which featured traditional hymns, dancing and music.

In his sermon, Williams’ son – Archbishop Dr Aaron Granville Williams – told believers not to worship his father.

Archbishop Williams, who is based in Trinidad, also put the church on notice that he would be monitoring it to ensure his father’s legacy is not trampled on.

You can’t have this work that he has done go down the drain with foolishness, fighting for power and all kind of nonsense,” he warned.
