Who we are

The early Anglican community of Bedford first held services in a school in the area of First Avenue. In February 1864, George Lister sold a parcel of his land at the corner of Wardour and Perth Streets to be used for the building of a church, as well as land for a cemetery for the use of the Church of England. The first All Saints Church was built on that site and opened for services in February 1869. At that time All Saints was considered part of the Parish of Sackville. Anglican worship continued at that site until 1905 when the present church was built on the main road at a cost of $5607.00. The new church was designed by PEI architect William Chritchlow Harris, who has since become famous for his unique church designs. The old church was no longer needed and it was sold and moved from the cemetery to a location across the street. The building still stands and is now a private residence. All Saints remained part of the Parish of Sackville until 1922, when Bedford, Waverley, and Windsor Junction were made into a parish. As the population continued to grow, in 1967 it became necessary to divide the Parish again and Bedford’s All Saints became a one point parish. The All Saints Church we enjoy today is one hundred and five years old. The rich wood interior has retained its original beauty. The stained glass windows are exquisite and are wonderful memorials. Although additions have been made to the original building and the entrances have been changed, the interior has been preserved. How fortunate we are to have this wonderful place of worship. All saints history in Bedford began in 1869. That makes this parish 141 years old in 2010.

All Saints Anglican Church Historical Photos

The power of Christian prayer Help my unbelief
Dear God, help my unbelief. When I'm in pain, I forget that you care about me. I forget that you have helped me through my trials. I forget that you hold me in your arms to keep me safe. I forget that you are feeling my pain with me. I forget that you love me, I forget that I am important to you. Show me your presence - let me feel your enveloping love. Heal my hurting soul. Thank you for staying with me even in my unbelief.
