Parish History

The congregation started to worship in 1849, when settlers started to move west from the Red River Settlement.  The original church was consecrated in 1855, in the middle of the cemetery that now looks across at Polo Park.  Before that, the site had been used as a refuge for victims of the flood of 1850.  The Parish of St. James gave its name to the growing village, and our life has been bound up with our local community ever since. 


We continue to use two buildings:  Heritage St. James (across from Polo Park) has been restored, and is used during the summer for regular Sunday worship, as well as some baptisms, weddings, and funerals.  The “new” Church (1922) and Parish Hall on Collegiate Street (just South of Portage) is our centre for regular worship and programmes throughout the year.

The Collegiate Street church is fully accessible. the work was completed in 2010 and just needs a few ‘prettifying’ details! 2012: Heritage Church now has a wheelchair-friendly path to the church doors.

See the photos of the construction here.
