Fonds - Brief Description: 

St. Martin's Anglican Church (Niagara Falls, Ont.) fonds. – 1947-2004. – 27cm of textual records.

St. Martin's Church had its beginning in 1935, under the direction of support of All Saints Church in Niagara Falls. The building used for Sunday school until the post-war years proved inadequate for both the school and worship services. Bishop Broughall was petitioned in 1946 to provide a separate clergyman for the community with an eye to building a proper church. The Rev. Harold Bagnall was appointed and began making plans for the building that was eventually dedicated by Bishop Walter Bagnall on November 8, 1951. The Parish was disestablished on September 8, 2004 by the Rt. Rev. D. Ralph Spence, Bishop of Niagara.
