A Pictorial View of the Comox Valley

Churches in the Town of Comox
 _________


There are several church denomination's that hold services in other churches, homes or halls. I have not always included the picture's of these locations.  I may have missed a church, if so I apologize, please let me know and I will rectify it. If there is any church that does not exist anymore please let me know. Some of the churches are just outside the boundaries of the Town of Comox but near enough to be included in the district.

 A Brief History of St. Peter's

The parish of Comox originally included the whole of the Comox Valley, including Comox, Sandwick and Courtenay. Initially services were located at St. Andrew's Mission at Sandwick. The district became a parish officially in 1871, with the Reverend Jules Xavier as the first minister.
The first St. Peter's Church building on the present site was built in 1891 and completed in 1893. Land for the new church had been donated by Mr. W.R. Robb, with the understanding that it be built immediately, at a cost of approximately two thousand dollars. A donation to the building fund in the name of Dunsmuir is believed to be from Robert Dunsmuir of Cumberland, Nanaimo and Victoria. The church was completed at a cost of $2218, and was consecrated on June 10, 1891, with Jules Willemar as the first incumbent.
The geographical definition of St. Peter's parish was centred on the Town of Comox, but over the first 48 years, it was gradually expanded to include Point Holmes, Kye Bay, Little River and Seal Bay. By 1939, the parishioners decided that a larger and more modern building was needed. The final service in the old church was held May 21, 1939, and demolition begun.
The foundation for the present St. Peter's Anglican Church in Comox was laid on the original site. The cornerstone was formally placed on September 3, 1939,...............

 Comox Valley Presbyterian Church
Comox Valley Presbyterian Church was established in 1995 and moved into its present building in 2001.  Its founding minister, The Rev. D’Arcy Lade, worked diligently for 10 years establishing the congregation until his untimely death in 2005.  The ability of the congregation to carry on after his illness  and death is a tribute to the visionary, passionate and steadfast ministry D’Arcy provided over those ten years.
