Important Dates for your calendar

On October 19th, 2017 at 7pm we will hold our Celebration of New Ministry. This celebration marks the Installation of Fr. Elliott as our Rector and celebrates the ministry of the parish as a whole. The Celebrant will be the Very Reverend Paul Smith, Archdeacon of Chebucto and our special guest preacher will be Archdeacon Ian Miles Wissler, Archdeacon of the South Shore. Please save this date and plane to attend this important moment in the life of our parish.
There will be a financial offering made at this worship to be offered to the Glory of God and in loving support of the Anglican Healing Fund.
For 25 years, the Anglican Healing Fund has financially supported local, community-led healing projects. As a response to the on-going legacy of the residential school system, grants from the healing fund are made to encourage and initiate programs that help heal, educate, and recover language and culture.
This offering will be given to Archbishop Fred Hiltz during a special Evensong on October 22nd, 4pm at our Cathedral Church of All Saints – all are welcome to attend this worship.

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.
