Anglican Church - Change Islands


St. Margaret's Anglican Church, the oldest church on Change Islands, was opened for worship on Sunday June 16th, 1892. The Church was named after St. Margaret, the daughter of Edward the Exile of England who took an active interest in the people of Scotland and was very charitable to the poor and the needy.

On display in the church is a Bible that was presented to the earlier Church of St. James the Apostle, by the Bishop of Newfoundland on Aug 23, 1853.

It's a beautiful church, very nicely photographed. It appears to be sitting all alone in the countryside.
