Beginning in 1828 the Rev. W. Cockran held religious services in the homes of settlers in this area. In 1829 he established a permanent residence at Grand Rapids on the Red River and by 1831 had built a small wooden church. His growing congregation required a larger church building and the present stone church , the oldest in Western Canada, was begun in 1845 and completed in 1849. This simple but beautiful building became the center of missionary activity in Rupert's Land and continues to be the focus of active parish life.

Grand Rapids sur la rivi?re Rouge et il y construisit, d 1831, une chapelle en bois. Le nombre croissant de ses ouailles n?cessita la construction de cette ?glise de pierre, la plus ancienne de l'Ouest canadien. Commenc?e en 1845, elle fut termin?e en 1849. De conception simple, mais explessive, elle devint le centre de l'activit? missionnaire de la Terre de Rupert et continue d'?tre le foyer de la vie paroissiale.
