Trinity Church, Blenheim, Ontario

Trinity Anglican Church, Blenheim, OntarioBlenheim, Ontario was incorporated into a town in 1885 and is now part of Chatham-Kent.

Trinity Church, Blenheim, is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. The congregation was formed in 1858 with a small, wood-frame church built.

The church is having other events and will publish a commemorative booklet that may be purchased by contacting the church office at 519-676-2081.
