St. Peter’s Anglican Parish

The Parish of Upper Island Cove is made up of three congregations. St. Peter’s, Upper Island Cove; St. John the Evangelist, Bishop’s Cove; and St. Andrew’s, Bryant’s Cove. The Parish boasts a proud history that dates to 1815 when construction began on the first church building at Upper Island Cove.


Today, Upper Island Cove is one of the largest Anglican Parishes in the Diocese serving over 850 families in the three communities. Each of the Church buildings is unique in architecture and is well maintained. The Parish is pleased to be served by active Sunday Schools, a Vacation Bible School, J.A., C.L.B., Three A.C.W. Branches, an A.C.A.A., and various Adult Christian Education Programs.

Services are held throughout the year and we strive to make all who come through our doors to feel welcome and spiritually nourished.
