Holy Trinity Church’s Interior – A Photo Blog

Last Thursday I had the opportunity to visit and photograph the interior of Holy Trinity Anglican Church on Hughenden’s main street. Constructed in 1914, it’s one of this community’s oldest structures. It’s always a pleasure to spend time here. It’s a piece of history that is able to take me back to a time before I existed. And that’s pretty special.

This photo highlights some of the beautiful woodwork in this old building, including the pews. I think they are the original benches. So pretty – and padded!

Here’s the view out the front door looking on to Hughenden’s main street and the old Ford garage newly-painted and spruced-up by local owners.

The acoustics in Holy Trinity Anglican Church are very good and I wonder if this is due to the shape of its wood ceiling. Looks brand new still, doesn’t it?

The church’s baptismal font.

“Margaret Wall was the organist when the new electric organ was installed March 30th, 1985, a gift from St. John’s congregation in Sedgewick. The organ and Margaret continued faithful service until the church doors closed for the last time. Not only did she open the church and turn up the heat, Margaret shovelled the walks and was treasurer for many years. The old pump organ sat for a number of years in the porch of the church until purchased by Kathleen Wall, Margaret’s daughter.” ~ written by Arlene Beebe-Cromarty, from Memories and Milestones.

Hi Lori,

Love this blog!

Please note that the old pump organ was returned 2 years ago to Holy Trinity Anglican Church thanks to Amisk Hughenden Historical Society. Maxine Todd played it at our 2019 Summer Service and was able to make beautiful music on the more than 100 year old organ.

Take care!
