Holy Trinity Anglican, Chatham, Ontario

Holy Trinity Church, Chatham, Ontario Chatham, Ontario is in southwestern Ontario founded in 1794. Prior to the American Civil War, Chatham was the centre of antislavery activity and one of the northern terminuses for the 'Underground Railway' which brought fugitive slaves to Canada. There are three Anglican Churches in Chatham, Ontario

Holy Trinity Church was founded in 1875 chiefly to serve the growing number of immigrant families who were coming to Chatham to work in the city's manufacturing industry.

Shown is the Pipe Organ which is of three manuals plus pedals, consisting of 1700 pipes in 30 ranks. The most notable feature is the brass "Trompette en Chamade" located over the ambulatory door.

Renison College, Waterloo, Ontario
Renison University College, Waterloo, Ontario
The Anglican laity in Kitchener and Waterloo under the authority of the Diocese of Huron founded Renison College in 1959. It was named in memory of Robert John Renison (1875-1957), Metropolitan of Ontario 1952-1954 and Archbishop of Moosonee 1943-1954. In 1960, the college entered an affiliation with the University of Waterloo with the right to offer courses and programmes in Arts and the Social Sciences for credit towards the Bachelor of Arts degree.

The first building provided offices, classrooms, and two residence wings to house 40 men and 40 women. A second building was erected in 1964 to provide additional academic and residence space. Today the College’s residences provide accommodation for 220 residents.

The programs at Renison are Social Development Studies; the Bachelor of Social Work; East Asian Studies; and the English Language Institute. The Ministry Centre houses the Renison Institute of Ministry and St. Bede's Chapel. This year Renison was renamed Renison University College.

Waterloo, Ontario was first settled by Mennonites and grew with German immigration, the majority of which were Lutheran. After the Second World War, immigration by other groups diluted the German characteristics of the city.

There are now 3 Anglican Churches in Waterloo, Ontario.
