Designated Municipal Heritage Property: Rugby Chapel 1913

The gift of the students and staff of Rugby School, England, Rugby Chapel was erected by the students of Emmanuel College under the leadership of George Exton Lloyd, M.A., Principal, 1908-1916. A wooden version of an English Stone-built church, the chapel has a wooden vault support structure, gothic windows and a Norman tower over the porch. In 1913 the building was expanded from 150 seating to 200, again with the financial help of Rugby School. It is said that much of the building was constructed by Emmanuel college students, with help from local tradesmen. Rugby Chapel was reopened in 1922 after a period of disuse during WWI. A pipeless furnace was later installed to replace 3 heating stoves, the ceiling was raised, the walls decorated and finally, a pipe organ installed in the summer of 1923. In 1926 a stained-glass window, “For the sake of the Name they went forth,” was installed to commemorate the Emmanuel students who died in WWI.

The Chapel was used as a place of worship until 1966, when it was replaced by St Chad's Chapel. The building standing today very close to College Drive is essentially what was the Chapel of 1913.
