Name of creator
The parish of St Paul was formed by The Right Rev S.P. Matheson on 17 April 1897. Services, however, had been held in the area as early as the 1880s in the home of Thomas Henry Brown. Once the Belcourt Schoolhouse was built, services were held there until St Paul's church was built in 1910. It was consecrated on 7 September 1913. A cemetery was consecrated on 12 December 1915. Throughout its history, St Paul's, Baie St Paul, has been associated with St Luke, Poplar Heights (OW.071) and St Anne, Poplar Point. By the 1960s, services were being held on alternating Sundays, and then only in the summer months. The bell tower was restored in 1993, and the church was designated a Municipal Heritage Site on 15 April 1994. St Paul, Baie St Paul, at the time of description, is only open for special anniversary services. The cemetery is maintained by the former congregation.
