St Stephen’s was the first Anglican Church built in Renfrew County when the original log church was built in 1858. In the 1870-1880s, a stone church was built to replace the log structure. That church was eventually outgrown, and a larger church was built in 1907
In 1909, St Stephens was heavily damaged by an acetylene gas explosion. But the community rebuilt and the church was consecrated on May 5, 1912.
Today, as they have for more than 30 years in a row, the church hosts a vibrant Vacation Bible School each summer, called “Noah’s Ark.”
