Name of creator
The Balmoral Mission dates back to 1908. Balmoral, Brant (OW.011) and Victoria (OW.098) shared a minister. Services were held in the local school house and hall. Building plans for a church were drawn up in 1908 and land was anonymously donated, "west of the Massey Harris Implement shed." A Building Committee was also formed and the intent was that the church be finished in April 1909. The building never materialized, however. In 1921, services in Balmoral, Brant and Victoria were provided by Stonewall's priest. This arrangement continued up to the present. Services were suspended for a time before resuming in 1930. For a brief time, the congregation rented the Balmoral United Church until rising expenses forced the congregation to suspend its use of the building. Plans for an Anglican church were again made in April 1954. This time, a 50 foot lot next to the Central Garage was donated by Mr. S. Holloway. St. Peter's Anglican Church, Balmoral, was dedicated 19 June 1955. At the time of description, the church remains in occasional use for anniversary and holiday services.
