Christ Church, Her Majesty's Chapel Royal of the Mohawk, is of great historical significance to the Mohawk people and to the colonial history of Canada and it continues to play an active role in the community and the Diocese.
It is a Gothic structure built in 1843 and it houses a number of gifts given to it by the Royal Family over the last three centuries to commemorate the alliance between the Mohawk and the British Crown. This alliance played an important role in the defence and preservation of the lands that ultimately became Canada.
The Chapel Royal is not just a testament to the faithfulness of the Mohawk people to God and to the Crown. It continues to witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ through its work as a continuing parish church of the Diocese of Ontario. Christ Church members are active in the communities from which they come (not all are First Nations members) and the congregation has a vibrant life centred on worshipful liturgy, Christian education, and outreach. While at times the unique cultural and historic context of the Chapel Royal is an obstacle to the overall mission of the Church, the faithful people of the parish strive always to live out their Christian ministry with dedication and cheerfulness.
If you are searching for a way to reconnect with or refresh your spirit, please consider Christ Church as a place to start. We welcome you to our worship and hope you will become a part of our Christian community. Christ Church is widely used by Mohawks and others who are searching for a meaningful place to explore their spirituality or mark a significant life event and you too can find a home here.
All Saints' Church is located in the heart of the Territory, on Ridge Road, in close proximity to the administrative and community buildings, such as the school, health centre, and recreational facilities. Smaller than Christ Church, All Saints' was built in the mid-nineteenth century to serve a growing number of Anglicans in the west end of the Territory. Today it is the home of a thriving community of Christians. In 1988, the Queen Anne Parish Centre, a modern parish hall with washrooms, kitchen, conference room, parish office, classrooms, and large gathering space was added and is available for use by members of the community.
