Land for the first Anglican Church was purchased on October 16, 1890 on the north side of Algoma St. E. and a small church was built shortly thereafter.

A new property was purchased in January 1912 on Main Street East, where the old church building was then moved to. The old building was cut in half and rebuilt with additional pieces put in between. The official opening took place on November 28, 1912. Reverend Tate officiated at this Church until he retired in 1929.
