Church of the Holy Trinity, Toronto

Church of the Holy Trinity, Toronto

Standing poignantly at the Trinity Square, the Church of the Holy Trinity welcomes all, from every walk of life and every segment of society. With a history of upholding charity, reaching to the needy and poor, the philosophy of the Church of bringing traditional faith to today’s issues is taken seriously now as ever. With a congregation of people representing all strata of society, the Church has built a reputation of changing with time and welcoming every individual with open arms.

Built in 1847, the Church of the Holy Trinity boasts a subtle yet resolute Gothic structure. Designed by Henry Lane, the Church was constructed by John Harper. Limestone from the Humber Valley and sandstone from Ohio was used for the construction of this building.

The Church was built in retaliation to the practices that were followed by established churches during those times. Churches throughout England and Toronto came up with a rule to charge a certain fee for reserving pews, which made it impossible for the poor to attend to. The Church of Holy Trinity was thus erected to provide a place of worship for one and all without any bench fee. The Church was completed on a budget of £5000 which was donated by Mary Lambert Swale, who supported the cause.
