Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

This Anglican Church at Headingley is the third structure constructed by the congregation. The first church, built on the bank of the Assiniboine River in 1854, was also used as a community schoolhouse. A second structure dating from 1876 was destroyed by a cyclone in August 1884 and replaced in 1885. Additions included a chancel (1905) and bell tower (1909). By 1931, declining attendance resulted in the use of the church only in the summer. With renewed interest after the Second World War, the church was moved to its present site along Portage Avenue in 1951.
