About Us

the church building, red doorFriend, you enter here not as a stranger, but as a friend of God.

Trinity Church, Cambridge sits on the banks of the Grand River in the down town core of Cambridge, and is home to almost 400 families and individuals.

We continue to be blessed by both our past and present ministries.

Our Sanctuary is spacious and beautiful, and includes a smaller, charming chapel. Our Stained Glass is breathtaking and is a witness to our scriptures and our history.

 

History

black and white photo of the original churchThe church was built and consecrated in 1844, four years following the incorporation of the parish, by the Rt. Rev. John Strachan. The Hon. Wm. Dickson donated the land on the right bank of the Grand River and together with his superintendent/manager, Absalom Shade, bore a large portion of the cost of clearing the land and building the church. Both men were founders of Galt, Ontario.

Through a bequest by Absalom Shade, Trinity House, the rectory, was built in 1873. The park in front of Trinity Church was also a gift of the Dickson family and is open to the public. Trinity Anglican Church is the oldest stone church in Waterloo Region.

Labyrinth

The Trinity Labyrinth was first envisioned by our parish nurse, Barbara Lemm, and members of our Health Cabinet. After much planning, this labyrinth is now a reality. It is open to the public as a place of contemplation. We welcome you to walk the labyrinth.
