Administrative history

The parish of St Cyprian, Teulon actually has its roots in the neighbouring town of Foxton. In 1898, Rev. H.W. Baldock initiated the construction of a church. Land was purchased from John McMullen and a year later, construction began. The labour was done largely by Jack Williams and volunteers from the surrounding district. The church was opened in Foxton on 4 February 1900. The church was consecrated 12 May 1901 by the Right Reverend Machray. Shortly thereafter, the congregation decided to move the church two miles west to Teulon. The church was successfully moved to its present location on 24 January 1909 and was ready for service the following Sunday. Several parishioners did not support the move, however, and left the congregation. Once established in Teulon, the parish purchased a rectory, next door to the church. The rectory was taken down and the land sold in 1974. In 1979, a joint Sunday School with the Teulon United Church was formed. Pupils met in the Christian Education Building of the United Church. A parish hall was constructed in 1987. It was formally opened on 10 September 1987. In its history, St Cyprian has been associated with a number of parishes. In its early days, St Cyprian was tied to St Stephen, Gunton (OW.036) until its closure in 1968. In 1995, St Cyprian entered into a shared ministry with St George, Woodlands (OW.105). As part of this arrangement, services were also provided for St Michael, Grosse Isle (OW.034) and All Saints, Erinview (OW.026). In 2006, St Cyprian entered into another ministry covenant, this time with the Lutheran churches in Teulon and Inwood. St Cyprian, at the time of description, is served by a Lutheran minister.
