The Elizabethan Vestry system was adopted by Barbados and the Island was divided into six parishes (later extended to the eleven civil parishes). The parish of Saint Michael and Saint George formerly served as a united parish with the parish Church of Saint Michael situated in the City of Bridgetown. The first church was a wooden building on another site. The first building on this site was consecrated in the year 1665 and accommodated 3,000 worshippers. That building was destroyed by the hurricane of 1780. The new Church was dedicated on the Feast of Saint Michael and All Angels in 1789. It was at the time the largest church on this side of the Atlantic, and with its substantial tower and peal of bells is much the same building one sees today for, although it was severely damaged again by hurricane in 1831, it was not demolished. Upon the separation of the parishes of Saint Michael and Saint George, Saint Michael's continued to be the parish Church of the City of Bridgetown. The first Bishop of Barbados was the famous Bishop William Hart Coleridge.
The Parish Church of Saint Michael now became the Cathedral of the new Diocese. The present Cathedral seats about 1600 persons, but the peal of bells in the tower is no longer rung.
