All Saints Anglican Church
It was British policy in the 18th century to support every colony with the establishment of a Church of England.
The government agency responsible for this policy was called The Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts or more commonly, the SPG.
The story of All Saints Anglican Church begins when Rev. Dr. Samuel Cooke is sent by the SPG to Saint John, NB in 1785.
In 1788 the Church opened its doors to all denominations as a place of worship. The first resident clergyman, Rev. Samuel Andrews, served the community between 1786 and 1818.
