A Rich Past, A Promising Future
St Alban's volunteers produced a wide variety of community events in 2023, from the UEL service, a yard sale and our annual fish fry, to book launches and seasonal concerts. Check out the details and stay tuned as we build the schedule for 2024.
Learn about the unique windows of St. Alban's from local historical writers, or tour the church, built as a memorial to the United Empire Loyalists who helped found the province of Ontario. Tours run Sat & Sun through the fall. Books for sale online.
Thanks to generous donations from the community, tower masonry repairs are progressing well.
THE GREAT BATH BANK HEIST
In 1945 the the sleepy town of Bath became the site of the Great Canadian Bank Robbery. Armed thieves escaped police and stashed their loot in a nearby church. Can you find it?
The cafe is closed for the season but will reopen next spring.
Explore our used books and music collection, including vinyl LPs. Housed in the rectory. Open Sat & Sun through the fall.
St. Alban’s has been a wedding venue since 1890. Planning a wedding and seeking a unique space for your ceremony? We would be happy to speak with you.
The first service at St. Alban the Martyr UEL Memorial Church was held in 1890. For over 130 years the congregation took pride in their association with the Loyalist settlers who influenced the creation and culture of Upper Canada.
In 2018 St. Alban’s closed its doors causing a group of concerned community members to form the Friends of St. Alban’s. In 2020 we became a registered charity and lease the church while purchase arrangements are being finalized.
Our vision is to preserve this beautiful heritage building while returning it to it’s role as a valued community resource.
