The Church of God (Seventh Day) Jamaica Conferencegrew out of the effort of Elder James Murray of Trinidad who, on the request of one Sis. Hannah Smith visited Jamaica on June 14, 1930. Sis. Smith's home, which was then situated at 29 Long Mountain Road, now Mountain View Avenue, was the first venue for prayer meetings and Bible Studies. As this evangelical work intensified it was a matter of time before the trappings of the early church body emerged.
