St Stephen's Anglican, London, Ontario
St Stephen's Church, London, OntarioSt Stephen's Memorial Anglican Church in London, Ontario was begun by returning Veterans of the Second World War and their families 60 years ago. Today, the members of the Parish reflect a wide range of ages, as well as, differing social, cultural, educational, and economic backgrounds.

On Sundays, the 8:30 am service is a quieter service, while the 10:30 am service features a choir and church school for children aged 3 to 12. On Wednesdays at 6:30 pm, there is a 30-minute quiet service of Holy Eucharist.

The rector is the Rev. Keith Nethery who is also the Diocese of Huron's Communications Officer. Every two weeks he presents a new Anglican segment of a multifaith television program that airs throughout Southwestern Ontario. The program can be seen online at Life and Faith.

First Mohawk Translation

Chapel of the MohawksJust over 200 years ago, the gospel according to Saint John was translated into the Mohawk language. The translator was John Norton, of Cherokee and Scottish parents, whose Indian name was Teyonin-hakarawon. Norton got up every morning before sunrise and worked tirelessly until midnight, completing the translation of The Gospel of John in just two months. 2,000 copies were printed.

The work was the first foreign language publication of the British and Foreign Bible Society which had been founded in 1804 by the Clapham Sect. The Clapham Sect was an evangelical movement of parliamentarians, of which William Wilberforce was the most famous. Wilberforce, among other things, was the driving force in abolishing the slave trade.

Norton received the commission after being in England on behalf of his adoptive father, Indian chief Colonel Joseph Brant, where he unsuccessfully argued the Grand River land river land claim before the Privy Council.

Shown is H. M. Chapel of the Mohawks, Brantford, the first Protestant church in Ontario. It was built for the Mohawks of the Six Nations Iroquois to replace the Queen Ann Chapel (1712) at Fort Hunter, New York. The Mohawks settled here in 1784 after losing their lands during the American War of Independence.

The church was dedicated to St Paul in 1788 by Rev John Stuart (1736-1812). It is the only Royal Chapel in North America, given the designation in 1904 by Edward VII.
