Support Historic Trinity

Choir 1950s

Trinity’s Choir c.1950

When your church home is also an important historic site in your province, there is a sense of responsibility to maintain its architectural integrity.  A clapboard church building dating to Regency Upper Canada requires an extra measure of continual care.  So, too, do our historic Parish Hall and cemetery.

Your support of Trinity’s upkeep, and of special restoration projects, is deeply appreciated.  The extreme heat and cold of the Canadian seasons mean that exterior painting, for example, is an ongoing routine.  We try to restore one or more of the earliest tombstones as we are able.   In 2012, with your assistance, we were able to recreate, in authentic detail, the quatrefoil window in the steeple whose existence was verifiable solely from the only 19th-century photograph of the church.

To assist with regular maintenance, or to contribute to one of our special projects, please email us at or write to us at P.O. Box 159, Port Burwell, Ontario N0J1T0.  Please consider including Trinity in your annual giving, or in a bequest.  You may specify a specific project, a specific area of our ministry, or a specific aspect of our heritage – church, hall or cemetery – with your gift.

Your assistance will help us to maintain this unique corner of earliest Ontario for many generations to come.  And do stop in to visit anytime!
