4. NEW INFO re Saint John the Evangelist

Saint John the Evangelist Church site is located in Whites Cove, Queens County
Location: 5400 Blk Route 105, White's Cove NB         (nearby postal code E4C 3H9)

The church building was taken down in 2012 due to structural issues.
The site in marked by the cemetery located in a small knoll in a grove of trees near the foundation of the old church 
and a stone monument was placed near the bell on November 25, 2014
                                                                            
Note: People in this area originally worshiped at the Whites Point Anglican Church which was built in 1830 at Robertson’s Point and was known as the “Point Church”. Because of the angle of the boundary line between the church and the Robertson properties, there was a dispute over the right of way to the church necessitating the use of an alternate route along the shoreline. In the spring, the road would flood and become inaccessible for 3-4 four months of the year. The congregation decided to move the church to Whites' Cove. 

In 1869, work began on the new church using lumber from the Knight Estate. The steeple and bell were used from the Point Church. The Saxby Gale of 1869 twisted the frame as the church was being built and steel rods were used to hold its shape.  The Saint John the Evangelist Church was consecrated in 1871 by Bishop John Medley. The church was repaired and repainted in October 1946 when the church celebrated its 75th Anniversary. In 1988 Allan Hunter restored windows in the church with new frames and new glass panes with donations from church families. The church continued to be used until 1995 and was taken down in 2012 due to structural issues. The original bell was saved and installed at the existing cemetery.
