Land for the first Anglican Church was purchased on October 16, 1890 on the north side of Algoma St. E. A small church was built on that site.

A new property was purchased in January 1912 on Main Street East, where the old church building was then moved to. The building was cut in half and rebuilt with additional pieces put in between. A new lantern tower was added and the old tower with the pinnacle was rebuilt. The official opening of the new church took place on November 28, 1912.

Reverend Tate officiated at this Church until he retired in 1929.
