History Biographical: 

All Saints' Anglican Church (Coniston, Ont.) is a church in the single point parish of All Saints' Anglican Parish (Coniston, Ont.).

The first service of what would become All Saints’ Church was conducted by Mr. Fred W. Colloton (later ordained) on September 30, 1990 in the staff boarding house in Mond,a mining village near Victoria Mines. Another first service was held in Victoria Mines on May 1, 1901 by Rev. James Boydell (later canon), with the Bishop as preacher. The All Saints’ Church was opened by the Bishop of Algoma on December 6, 1908. Shortly afterwards, the Mond Nickel Company moved and re-established itself in Coniston; the church soon followed in 1915. The parsonage was built in 1923 and the church hall around 1938. Around 1949 a basement was built beneath the parsonage. In 1952 it was decided more sensible to build a new church rather than attempt repairs. Construction began in 1954 with help from the parishioner’s donations and a $1,500 loan from the Diocese, and later an anonymous donation at $1,000, a grant from the Diocese for another $1,000, and a donation from the Women’s Auxiliary for $500.

A new bell tower and bell at All Saints' was dedicated on December 27, 1981. The tower was designed by Herb Seifert and was a gift from the Stacey family.  Prior to being hung at All Saints' the bell rang at Victoria Mine (1900-1913) and was hung in the original church in Coniston from 1915-1941. When the new church was built the bell went into storage until the construction of the bell tower in 1981. 

The following donations have been made to the church over the years: East window and panels from the Stacey family, an altar from R. Hood, a baptismal ewer from C. Pascoe and family, a candle snuffer from Mr. and Mrs. E. Williams, the sanctuary carpet from the old Altar Guild, the chancel carpet from Mrs. T. Hood, the baptismal font from Mrs. I. McQuig, W. Cresswell, and B. Spencer, and the pulpit from Mrs. P. Johnston.

Incumbents have included: [Victoria Mines] Mr. F. W. Colloton, Rev. J. Mumford, Rev. N. Bruce, Rev. S. Yeomans, Rev. N. G. Watts, Rev. J. Graham, Rev. J. Vokey, Rev. W. H. Trickett (1906-1915).
