Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

The parish of St. Thomas Anglican Church was formed officially on 24 August 1910, before which it had been a mission of St. George’s Anglican Church. In 1906, a church building was constructed at this site at 1567 William Avenue in Winnipeg. It was replaced in 1923 by the present structure, and the old church was converted into a parish hall. In 1932, it received a pipe organ following the closure of St. Peter's Anglican Church. The hall was extended in 1961 and parish offices were added.
