Christ Church, Dresden, Ontario
"Mr. Hughes is most usefully employed with every prospect of success at Dresden. I have the utmost confidence in Mr. Hughes. I anticipate that much good will result from his ministry among the fugitive slaves. He is a man of such sound sense and a true Christian spirit."
In 1867, Hughes' seven-year-old son laid the cornerstone of Christ Church with the church being finished in October 1868. .
Since 2002 Christ Church, Dresden has been part of the 6-point Parish of the Transfiguration. The rector is Rev. Stephen Demitroff with honourary assistant, Rev. Michelle Collins-Wongkee.
