Services were held at St. Anne’s Anglican Church at Poplar Point for eight years before Canada became a country 147 years ago.

The historic log church will be the site of a 155th anniversary service and picnic on Sun., Aug. 10 starting at 10:30 a.m.

Church warden Monica Griffiths said she and other church members are delighted to still be able to bring summer services to the old log church with the dedication of the Diocese of Rupert’s Land and the volunteering ministers who conduct the church’s services.

"Our little congregation and vestry do our best to keep the church looking good and ready to serve." Griffiths said in an email. "We even have a reunion/internment celebration and a wedding booked this year. We are happy to share our church."  

The church’s exterior and interior restoration is almost complete, she also reported.

The St. Anne’s congregation holds regular Sunday services on the second and fourth Sunday of the month from July to October at 9 a.m. at the old church. They use the parish hall in Poplar Point as the location of their services for the rest of the year.
