Montserrat is a religious society. There is a Christian Council to which most churches are members. The churches serve not only as a place for spiritual growth but often function as hurricane shelters and election polling sites for some communities.
Since 2020, many of the churches now conduct hybrid services which allow viewers from all over the world to join their main events. Funeral services are also live streamed to include family and friends who could not travel home for the service.
Here are a list of churches currently serving the local community.
