Situated in St. James Cemetery, on land granted by the Hudson Bay Company, and surrounded by many of Winnipeg’s earliest settlers, our Provincial Heritage Church is the oldest log church still used for regular worship in Western Canada. Inside, you can clearly see the hand-hewn, fitted timbers of the structure. This church was the centre of parish life until November 26, 1922 when the ‘new’ church opened. Condemned in 1936, it was restored in 1967 by the City of St. James and the parish as a Canadian Centennial project. 2016 marked the 165th anniversary of this Parish of St James. The City of St. James was named for this parish.
