History Biographical: 

All Saints Anglican Church (Gore Bay, Ont.) is a church within the multi-point Western Manitoulin Anglican Parish.

The town of Gore Bay had its beginning in 1870, and in 1880 was established as a mission. Before a priest was stationed in the Western Manitoulin Anglican Parish, Rev. Frederick Frost would service a few outstation settlements while living in Sheguiandah from 1877 to 1895, when he was made Rural Dean. The first stationed priest was Rev. William Macauley Tooke, arriving in November 1880. The services and Sunday School were held at the Ocean House Hotel, owned by Henry Branscombe Hunt and his wife Margaret Ann Jones (sometimes referred to as Jessie). Mr. and Mrs. Hunt deeded the present lot of All Saints’ to the Bishop of Algoma. On December 25, 1880 Mrs. Hunt a concert was held by the children to raise money for the church’s construction. The church was begun in 1882, and finished July 29, 1883. A basement was built in 1923.  

The Women’s Auxiliary was formed in July 1904 under Mrs. Annie M. Francis, Mrs. Neil McIntosh, and Mrs. Johnston, with Mrs. Peters as Treasurer and Miss Spencer as Secretary.

During Rev. Johnston Peever’s time at All Saints’, the Bishop suggested the parish become self-supporting in order to have a resident priest. The parishioners agreed, and in 1965 All Saints’ became independent.
