Deanery of Huron
UPDATE: September 1, 2013, the Deanery of Perth and the Deanery of Huron were amalgamated into one deanery known as the Deanery of Huron/Perth.
Trivitt Memorial, Exeter, Ontario
The Anglican Deanery of Huron consists of 13 churches in 6 parishes. It covers a largely rural area in southwestern Ontario which is bordered on the west by Lake Huron. There has been a decline in church attendance caused in part by a general decline in the area's population. The deanery has churches in Mitchell, Blyth and Goderich, which with a population of 7,563 is the largest town.

Shown is the interior of Trivitt Memorial, Exeter, Ontario. The church was opened in 1888 named after Thomas Trivitt, Justice of the Peace in Huron County, who paid for the church after he had inherited a substantial estate. It was the custom at the time that pew rent was collected but at the new building all pews were free.

Trinity Anglican, Mitchell, Ontario

Trinity Anglican, Mitchell, Ontario Mitchell is located 20 km west of Stratford, and 60 km northeast of London, Ontario. Founded in 1836, it amalgamated into the new Municipality of West Perth (2006 pop. 8,839) in 1998.

The first Anglican Church in Mitchell was built in 1858, now the location of the cemetery. A new building was erected in 1897 that burned to the ground in 1939. The current building was built on the same site that same year.

St. George's Anglican, Goderich, Ontario

Goderich, Ontario is located on the eastern shore of Lake Huron. William 'Tiger' Dunlop founded it for the Canada Company in 1827. Goderich was connected to Guelph by the Huron Road that opened up the region to colonization. Salt was found in 1866 and a major industry since has been the salt mine which now extends 5 km under Lake Huron.

St. George's Anglican, Goderich was built in 1881. The building is of brick and has a 168-foot spire. Cruciform in shape, the interior is beautifully decorated with wall murals and stained glass windows. The stained glass in the building includes "Come unto me" (shown left). The floor of the nave slopes noticeably from the rear to the chancel, an unusual feature in an Anglican church but often used by Methodists to concentrate attention on the pulpit.

St. George's faces the same problems as all of the congregations with large, old buildings. They are repointing the brickwork of the exterior, putting a new roof on the chapel and hall, and replacing the windows in the rectory. The murals (dating from 1929) also need restoration work, but before this can happen, the problem of dampness in the walls must be addressed.
