Pulpit bar


Share post:

Controversial Methodist minister, Rev. William St Clair, who is popularly known as “the barefoot preacher”, has been stripped of his pulpit duties and transferred for the second time in two weeks.

The SUNDAY SUN understands that he has been reassigned to the James Street/ Speightstown circuit but will not be allowed to preach at any of the ten churches in that district.

Instead, he has been assigned to visit sick and shut-in members, among other duties.

Only last week, St Clair was removed from the Ebenezer and Rices churches where he had been preaching for close to a year since coming to Barbados, and sent to Shrewsbury Church.

The Ebenezer circuit falls under the command of Superintendent Minister Reverend Pearson Blackman, who challenged St Clair about his habit of preaching barefoot and serving communion every Sunday, rather than the traditional once a month in Methodism.

Please read the full story in today’s SUNDAY SUN, or in the eNATION edition.
