    We Need Your Support

    With your help, we can reach our goal!

    $300,000.00

    $245,500.00

    We are raising $300,000 to $350,000 to repair, restore and renew this historic Cowichan Valley church building.

    The Anglican Parish of St. Peter, Quamichan was formed before  British Columbia joined Confederation and this the second church building was completed in 1877.  Our “ancestors” the previous stewards of this building put their own stamp on things, building two additions, installing electricity, oil furnace (instead of wood burning), then in the 1960’s the siding was replaced and the building painted brown – instead of the original white.  At the start of this century the roof was replaced. In 2012 the furnace started to fail, it just couldn’t keep the building warm during the winter months…. this led to a fairly comprehensive study on the state of our property, not just the state of our church building but also our other buildings and the grounds in general.  In 2013 we voted to start a Capital Campaign/ Project to raise funds to make improvements to our grounds to prevent flooding in the hall, updates to the rectory to keep it rented out and most significant for the majority of parishioners get updated and efficient heating into our church, repair the crumbling stone foundation, update the out dated electrical system (some of it still the original knob & tube wiring from back in the day…), improve the sound system & technology ( we are of course a modern 21st century parish), improve the safety of the pathway and the list goes on…..

    We have raised  funds within the parish as well as the larger community of the Cowichan Valley. We have had great support but continue to need finacial donations to reach our goal.  We received a loan from the Diocese of British Columbia and approval to start our project. Work has started and is almost complete. It is  important that we reach our financial goal sooner rather than later so that we do not pay any interest on our construction loan from the Diocese of British Columbia.

    Donate today through our website using Pay Pal or alternatively, write a cheque to the parish for the Capital Project. You will receive tax receipts for donations of $20 or more at tax time, provided we have your name, address and e-mail.

    To find out more about our Capital Project, anticipated work and timelines please see our Church Restorations page.
