Parish Churches on the Southern Shore
From Goulds to Cappahayden


Anglican -
Goulds / Kilbride  = St  Paul's    709-368-3078…. The only church is St Pauls which now
holds the records of both Presentation and St Matthews churches. Those were the two Anglican
churches in the Goulds. They were replaced in the 1960s. The records there begin with
B-1903, M-1904, D-1945 and there are a few records from the 1860s but they are very few,
most were lost over the years from floods, fire, etc.
