Administrative history

St Bede's Parish was formed on 15 Mar 1956 by Bishop Walter Barfoot. Services had been held prior to the formation. A rectory was built in 1955 and a parish hall in 1960. St Bede's church was built in 1964 and dedicated on 27 Apr 1965. In 1971, St Bede entered in an agreement with St Stephen's Lutheran Church to form the Mount Royal Christian Centre. The two churches share the space (located at St Bede's) and maintain separate services. Joint worship is an often occurrence, however, making St Bede and St Stephen the first churches of their respective denominations in North America to do so. Since 1996, the two congregations have joined for the main Sunday worship and moved into full union in 2002. The Church of St Stephen and St Bede is now a fully amalgamated Anglican and Lutheran congregation.
