Administrative history

The mission at Fisherton, located in the R.M. of Fisher, 150 km north of Winnipeg, first appears in the 1914 Synod Journal with Peguis. The "Busy Bees Club" of Fisherton decided after the First World War to raise money to build an Anglican Church. Plans for the church began in 1927 but was put on hold until more money was raised. Mr Bob O'Malley donated 2 acres of land for the church site in 1930. Construction of a church finally began in the summer of 1932 after the Diocese gave a building grant of $200. The church was dedicated by Archbishop Isaac Stringer on September 4, 1932. The Busy Bees also paid for the board of students from Toronto Trinity College who came to conduct services. There was no incumbent for Fisherton from 1924-1939. It was independently known as "Fisherton North" from 1924-1928 and 1936-1939, and associated with Hodgson from 1929-1933. It was not listed in the Synod Journal from 1941-1962. The church was destroyed by fire on July 23, 1968 and was replaced by the former church building of All Saints, Scotch Bay, which was built in 1938. All Saints Church was brought to its new home on April 2, 1969. St John, Fisherton was also connected with Hodgson from 1965-1968, and has been connected with Hodgson - Peguis Parish since 1969.
