St Stephen’s Anglican Church


Built in 1892, abandoned 1954 when the new church was built at 930 Watson St. Still standing and occupied as a private residence in 2016 (right); see History: St Stephen’s Anglican Church.

In 1922 some of the interior scenes for the silent movie “The Man from Glengarry” were shot inside St Stephen’s.

All three of Britannia’s older churches moved to within a few hundred meters of one another in Queensway Terrace North, probably due to a combination property values (ie cost) at the time and proximity to their congregations.
