Important Dates for your calendar!

The first being the final Sunday which The Reverend Janet Hatt, our Priest-in-Charge, will be conducting Sunday Services at St. Peter’s. We have been very fortunate in having someone of Rev. Janet’s calibre take on the responsibilities of Priest-in-Charge over the past number of months. To thank her and to show her our appreciation we will be meeting for coffee, cake, etc after the 10:00 am Service on Sunday, August 27th.
The second very important event will be the first Services our new Rector, The Reverend Elliott Siteman will be conducting on Sunday, September 3rd. As an opportunity to meet and welcome Rev. Elliott and his family to the St. Peter’s family, there will be a ‘Meet and Greet’ occasion after the 10:00 am Service (this, of course will also consist of coffee, cake, etc.)
Both of these events are important to our Parish and are opportunities to show respect and support for our clergy

Welcome to St. Peter's

Welcome to the website of St. Peter's Anglican Church, Birch Cove. Here, at St. Peter's, you will find that we are an energetic group of Christians who, as our vision statement states, create a spiritual home by nurturing our growth in faith and exercising our ministry by reaching out to others. We are a community that welcomes others and encourages them to become part of our family and to practice their faith by joining us in worship and participating in one or more of our ministries or by introducing us to new ministries.

Our ministries include several outreach and community support programs and our liturgies are enriched by enthusiastic Lay Readers and numerous congregation members.

We are located just a few kilometers from the peninsula of Halifax City on the corner of the Bedford Highway and the Kearney Lake Road. Our location offers quiet residential living combined with a mixture of businesses for shopping convenience. Also, close by there are schools, postal services and Mount Saint Vincent University as well as a few historic sites such as Prince's Lodge.

We are now in the process of creating this website and it is our hope that it will provide you with the information you desire to discover our parish of St. Peter's, Birch Cove.
