The steam locomotive bell that is in the church is the second one there.  The first was acquired from CP in about 1967 and was installed on a heavy flag pole-like structure with a little roof over it (sort of like a bird shelter).  The bell was quite high up and was taken down at the end of each summer.  However, a few years later someone managed to get up the pole and steal it!  It was never found.  Someone in the congregation contacted CP and they came up with a replacement.  It was then decided to have a belfry built on the roof of the church for the bell to make it secure.  Bruce Ballantyne

Chris Wilson, the unofficial historial of the Royal Ottawa Golf Club, indicated that the bell was obtained some time in the 1950s and was used as a warning on one of the greens where visibility was restricted.  It was moved to its present location some time in the 1970s.  The Club has no record of its provenance.
