In 1816 Reverend Richard Pollard met with the wardens of Colchester regarding the building of a church and school at Colchester. The building of the church was contracted to Mr. William McCormick and was completed in 1820 with limestone from Pelee Island. The church was officially opened in 1821. In 1824, Reverend Pollard died and Colchester was served from Amherstburg. This church was used until 1876 when a new church was built.
