King church painting by Jack Bush

If you check out King City, Ontario, images on Wikipedia, one of the images you will come across is this watercolour and graphite creation titled 'Church, Near King City' by acclaimed Canadian artist, Jack Bush.   It is 8 1/4 x 11" and was painted in 1940.   In his early artistic career, Bush was influenced by the Group of Seven, among others.   But Bush happened upon American abstract impressionists in New York City and during the 1950s fell in with the abstractionists, changing his style forever.   The work above has a simple appealing charm about it but what really intrigues me is the identity of the church.   Does anyone know or have a guess?   This image appears on the website of Thielsen Gallery, in London, Ontario
