History of St. Peter and St. John Church Baddeck

St. Peter's and St. John's was the second of six churches built by Simon Gibbons during his Nova Scotian ministry from his ordination in 1877 to his death in 1896. Gibbons was half Inuit, brought up in the Newfoundland Church of England Widows and Orphans Asylum of St. John's and educated at King's College in Windsor, Nova Scotia. There is a possibility that Gibbons went to Cambridge University; he was in England on two occasions to raise money for building churches at Neil's Harbour and St. Peter's and St. John's in Baddeck. It is likely that it was there that he came into contact with the Cambridge Camden Society (Ecclesiological Society), whose influence on church architecture was most marked.

St. Peter's and St. John's was built in 1883. The ordeals of traveling in late nineteenth-century Cape Breton took their toll on Gibbons and in 1885 he transferred to Lockeport, then on to Parrsboro, both also in Nova Scotia.

Of the four Gibbons churches still standing, St. Peter's and St. John's best exemplifies the style advocated by the Ecclesiological Society and its supporters. In attempting to recreate the spirit of medieval styles in rural Canada, believers such as Gibbons had to find the inspiration and method to do so in wood and with simplicity.

The most distinctive aspect of Gibbon's churches is the helm roof on their church towers, as seen at St. Peter's and St. John's. This board and batten style church has buttresses, pointed arch windows and a round-headed window on the east elevation.

The power of Christian prayer Grant me...
Grant me prudently to avoid him that flatters me, and to endure patiently him that contradicts me
