Trinity Bible Chapel in Waterloo, Ontario has finally been given access back into their church building after it was seized by the government – hopefully marking the end of an ignoble period in Canadian History where faithful churches were ordered locked up and literally shut down on account of their fidelity to the scriptures and insisting that Christ, not the government, is head of the church.
The church building has been shuttered since April 30, when a judge ordered the doors locked, on account of the congregation refusing to cease gathering in person in contravention to shutdown orders, which prohibited gathering at more than 15% capacity. You can read more about that here.
Since then, the church has been meeting outside, as a condition of their access was that they must submit a COVID response plan that limits where and how they can have church services inside their building, something they have been reticent and thus far refusing to do.
Now, they have their building back.
Along with the church, they run the King Alfred Academy, a private Christian school whose mission is “To glorify God by giving children a classical and Christ-centred education that equips them for a life of learning, excellence, wisdom, discipline and virtue.” and whose vision is “to graduate generations of biblically informed young men and women who have a heart for the community, the ability to radically influence the culture for Christ, the courage to take a stand for the truth and the faith to believe that with God, all things are possible.”
Because King Alfred Academy shares a facility with Trinity Bible Chapel, that means they will likewise have access to start classes again.
The Church has not yet revealed what was the cause of them getting their building back – if they agreed to set up a COVID plan, or it was settled in the courts, though they say that an update is forthcoming.

A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by censorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
