Dates of existence


Services were held in the Eriksdale area beginning in 1906 with the arrival of Rev. J.P. Smithman. The first services were held in the home of R. Cowdery before moving to the Hartfield School. The church was built in 1911, due in large part to a donation of one thousand dollars by James F. Richardson of New Brunswick. Land for the church was donated by John Sharpe. The first service was held 23 July 1911. The church was consecrated that same year by Archbishop Matheson on 11 August. At this time, Eriksdale shared its minister with Eastlands and Mulvihill (later known as Tennyson, OW.094) Also during its history, Eriksdale was connected to St Cuthbert, Lily Bay (OW.075) and All Saints, Scotch Bay (OW.086). In the 1950s and 60s, the Parish was associated with a number of Bishop's Messengers, including Deaconess Postans. In 1965, only special services were held and by 1970, it had fallen into disuse. The building was sold to Mrs Lucy Linden in 1971. It is now the Eriksdale Museum.
