History Biographical: 

All Saints' Anglican Church (Burk's Falls, Ont.) is a church in the Almaguin Anglican Parish, which covers approximately the eastern portion of the Parry Sound District of Ontario.

The congregation in Burk's Falls was established on September 29, 1882 by Rev. William Crompton. The site of the church was specially chosen by Bishop Fauquier during the only visit he paid to the area. The first church building was fashioned of rough wood and was built without debt, but was destroyed by a fire in 1884.

During Rev. W.B. Magana's term from 1884 to 1887 a second church was erected on the original site. Unfortunately, this church was also destroyed by a fire on June 20, 1908.

Not far from the original, a new site was chosen for the third building of the All Saints’ Church and was opened on All Saints' Day, November 1, 1909. With the help of a $500 donation from the Henry Knight family a parish hall was constructed adjacent to the church in 1929.

All Saints' celebrated its 70th anniversary in 1979, which included the installation of a circular stained-glass window in the west wall. The window depicts the Phoenix in red, white, and blue colouring. 

Incumbents have included: Rev William Crompton (1882-1884), B. Harris (1883), Rev. W.B. Magana (1884-1886), W. Jenkins (1886), Rev. Francis Jephcott (1887-1888), Charles Piercy (1888), Rev.
