ST. PETER’S ANGLICAN CHURCH
In September 2015, St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Jamieson was 150 years old. Records indicate that the foundation stone was laid on September 28th, 1865 by Brother J.C. Causland of the Prince of Wales Lodge, Jamieson. And, as the image here shows, St. Peter’s church stands dwarfed by magnificent oak trees that are said to be as old as the church itself.
The main portion of the church is constructed from local 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 pulpit is constructed of Lebanon Cedar and is hand carved. The porch and wooden vestry were added to the building at a later date.
This historic building is in need of restoration. If you would like to help us secure the future of St. Peter’s through a financial or in-kind contribution towards the restoration of this building, please contact the Parish Priest to discuss how this might best be achieved at [email protected].
