ST. PETER’S ANGLICAN CHURCH
In September 2015, St.Peter’s Anglican Church in Jamieson was 150 years old. This historic building is in need of restoration and we have made a start. If you are interested in securing the future of St.Peter’s through a financial donation towards the restoration, please contact the Parish Priest for details :[email protected]
Records show that the foundation stone was laid on September 28th, 1865 by Brother J.C. Causland of the Prince of Wales Lodge, Jamieson. The church stands dwarfed by magnificent oak trees, which are said to be as old as the church itself. The main portion of the church is constructed from locally hand made bricks. The builders used the “stretcher and header” method to form solid walls. Originally the roof was shingled, but had to be covered over with iron for safety. The porch and wooden vestry were added to the building at a later date. The pulpit is constructed of Lebanon Cedar and is hand carved.
