Historic Sites of Manitoba: Nassau Street Baptist Church / Trinity Baptist Church (549 Gertrude Avenue, Winnipeg)

This stone church on Gertrude Avenue in Winnipeg was built in 1909. Known initially as Nassau Street Baptist Church, it was renamed to Trinity Baptist in 1930. A plaque in a display case inside the front entrance of the church commemorates parishioners who were killed during service in the First World War and Second World War. It became a municipally-designated historic building in 2018.
