This Anglican church is located at 237 Wilson Avenue in Kitchener, right next door to Wilson Avenue Public School. I visited their Christmas bazaar yesterday and came home with a bag full of gifts. This church is involved in the Nutrition for Learning program. Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday they serve breakfast to needy children who attend the school. Here is the link to their web page
I like the look of this church, its stone fence, rectory and grounds. Trinity Anglican Church was built on this site in 1844 and the rectory was built in 1873. The church website has more details about the history of the parish.
The church provides hot noon meals at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday through their Trinity Community Table program. Approximately 300 meals are served each week and volunteers and donors are welcome to contact the church for information on how they can help.
Christmas bazaar season has started and there are plenty of opportunities in the next month to buy crafts, food and gifts at various churches and institutions. This sign is in front of Faith Lutheran Church at 247 Westmount Road East in Kitchener. The Record has published a list of upcoming Christmas bazaars in the region. I am making an effort to buy locally produced items this Christmas and plan to check out a few of these sales.
