The Right Reverend Godfrey P. Gower, Bishop of the Diocese of New Westminster, formally established the parish of St, Laurence on May 16, 1963. The parish first met in the local health unit, but recognizing that the population in the area would likely double in the following ten years, the building committee decided to construct a facility that would provide space for worship, church school and parish activities. Members of the parish were active in the construction of the building, which was completed and the first services held in June 1965. The growing congregation saw the need for a larger building, and in 1987 plans began to build a new church. A very committed team of lay leaders met weekly for two years to incorporate the vision and desires of the parish. The original sanctuary would become a large parish hall and the new sanctuary would be built on an adjoining lot. With enthusiastic leadership and a vigorous stewardship campaign, the new building was consecrated on November 27, 1996.

No fonds-level description existed in legacy Inmagic database or in Guide to the archives, so one was created and the identifier F-336A/A-336A was assigned to the parish because of its geographical proximity to St. Stephen, Burnaby. The number is not meant to suggest any hierarchical relationship between the parishes.
