Administrative history

The Parish of Spaniard’s Bay was originally a mission of Harbour Grace. On June 2nd, 1843, the first recorded use of this church gives its name as The Church of the Holy Trinity. The schoolroom was used for services prior to having the church.

The first mention of what is now Tilton dates from a baptism service where the family is from "The Tilts", and the name Tilton appears in 1879. Records from the early 1880's refer to a place called New Harbour Line, later called Fall Pond Ridge, ultimately re-christened Goddenville. Throughout the written materials, old place names are still referred to Mint Cove, Green Head, Back Cove and Rocky Pond.
The Church of the Holy Trinity served the needs of the parishioners of Spaniard's Bay and the surrounding communities for almost five decades. Late in the 1880's it was decided once again that the population had grown to a point where the old church was too small to be of any use.
On May 3rd, 1891, the new Church was dedicated to the Holy Redeemer by Bishop Llewellyn Jones. The new church had a new name, The Church of the Holy Redeemer. The mission was elevated into a parish in 1913.

The Church of All Saints in Tilton was consecrated in November 1905.
