St Thomas Anglican, Seaforth, Ontario

St Thomas Anglican, Seaforth, Ontario5 John Street, Seaforth, Ontario

St. Thomas Anglican Church was the first permanent place of worship built in Seaforth. The frame building was constructed in 1863 with the chancel added in 1872 and wings were added in 1878 to provide more seating. In 1885, the congregation purchased, and moved, the old Methodist Episcopal Church building for use as a parish hall.

St Thomas Church along with St Paul's, Clinton and Trinity Church, Mitchell form the Parish of the Holy Spirit.

Next Monday, August 6, St Thomas will be one of many buildings in Seaforth open to the public from 10am to 4pm as part of the Ontario Doors Open program.
