Council Approves Funding For Restoration

Holy Trinity Anglican Church

At the June 20 Council meeting, Red Deer County Council approved a request for $75,000 to go toward the restoration of Holy Trinity Anglican Church. The Church requested $75,000 to help with the restoration of the building which includes replacement of the existing cedar shingled roof, exterior stripping, painting and repairs of the structure.

In 2009, the Church applied to Red Deer County for Municipal Historical Designation to protect the historical integrity of the Church. Red Deer County then designated the Church as a Municipal Historic Resource. Any repairs to the Church must comply with the Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada.

Due to the building being designated as a registered and municipal historical resource, there are painting and roof replacement specifications that the Church Board must follow. This work is labour intensive and contractors require knowledge of the guidelines for restoration of historical buildings. The historical Church was built in 1903 and is 114 years old. It is available to the public for church services such as weddings, funerals and christenings. The Church Board is contributing $25,000 towards the costs of the project and is actively seeking a grant through the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation for funding of the project.

According to County Community Services staff, “The Holy Trinity Anglican Church is significant due to its design, its association with the theme of early development in the Pine Lake area, and its status as an important landmark in the Pine Lake area of Red Deer County.” Councillor Philip Massier commented, “It is an honour to approve this request. This is one of the most photographed spots in all of Red Deer County. It is incredibly important to preserve our history for future generations to enjoy and learn from.”

Members of the church delegation were on hand for the approval. The decision was met with a great deal of enthusiasm by the volunteers who have kept the vision of the Church active over the last generation.
