In 1976, two evangelists, Bert Joyce of Corner Brook and Bryan Funston from Richmond, BC. commenced gospel work in the Eastport Peninsula
area. In the summer of 1976, a gospel tent was erected near Sandringham. There were large numbers of people that came to these meetings from the Eastport Peninsula area and from Glovertown. After the tent meetings, there was a portable hall brought in and set up on Mr. Bill Oldford's land in Sandringham,and used as a temporary building for the preaching and teaching of the scriptures. In 1977, a building was purchased in Sandy Cove, renovated and used as a Gospel Hall.
At that time there were members in the congregation from Salvage, Eastport, Sandy Cove, Sandringham, Glovertown, and as far away as Gambo and Gander. In 1981 the Gander members decided to start their own meeting in Gander, and eventually they built a new Gospel Hall there.
In 1987, the Gospel Hall members at Sandy Cove decided to build a new hall. Land was donated in Sandringham by Johnny Mac Samson. This was a more central area and where the work started in 1976. In 1988, construction on the new hall began and was completed in the winter of 1989. The Gospel Hall is located on the corner of Main Road and Samson's Ave.
The regular weekly meetings of the Gospel Hall are:
Sunday : Breaking of Bread --9:30-10:30am
Adult Bible class----11:30-12:00
Thursday: Prayer and Bible Study---7:30pm
