Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Thomas Anglican Church (Lockport, RM of St. Andrews)

The congregation of St. Thomas Anglican Church originated in the early 1860s, with a log chapel built in 1867 on land in the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews donated by Robert Steven and Thomas Truthwaite. The structure was replaced in 1906 by a larger one, opened by Archbishop S. P. Matheson. The chancel was added in 1913 and a memorial tower was built. In 1930, the present church was reconstructed and its dedication on 7 December 1930 was Archbishop Matheson’s last official act. The last service will be held at the church on 15 January 2012, after which the building will be sold and its artifacts will be transferred to St. Andrews.
