St. Albans Church celebrates its first 150 years

On Sunday Sept. 24, St Albans celebrated 150 years of fellowship, dating back to when John A. Macdonald called this Sandy Hill church his home. The traditional evensong, featuring Book of Common Prayer text and choral music sung by former members of the St. Albans choir preceded entertainment from the church’s current worship band. Rev. Mark Whittall’s sermon focused on how St. Albans has never been afraid to try something new, from being one of the first churches to not charge for pews a century ago, to just six years ago launching the community it is today: a spirit-led, Christ-centered, contemporary urban church. — Erica Howes
