Every corner of All Saints Anglican Church leaves Father Doug McGlynn in awe.

"I knew it would be gorgeous, and it is even more than I had thought," said McGlynn.

Setting foot inside the recently completed church transports you to 15th century England-- the church was designed to model a church of that time period.

"This is a church which attempts to capture the best of a period in Christian history, without losing all the advantages that modern technology can give us for communicating and reaching people and touching the world," said McGlynn.

Among the church's features are stained glass windows, ceilings with wooden beams, an English Baptismal font, and a chapel. Around 20 artifacts from Anglican cathedrals spanning all over the world will eventually live in the church.
