Administrative history

The parish of All Saints, Whytewold was formed on 17 November 1922 by the Right Reverend SP Matheson. The parish serves the Village of Dunnottar, which is a collection of three Lake Winnipeg resort communities: Matlock, Whytewold and Ponemah. Services, however, began two years earlier in 1920 and were held in the local schoolhouse. A W.A. chapter was formed in 1921 and began fundraising for a church. Part of these fundraising efforts included a Summer Tea, held in July, 1921. The Summer Tea has since become an annual event in the parish. On 26 November 1922, All Saints Church, also known as, "The Little Church at the Crossing," was opened for service. The structure was designed by Victor W Harwood. Rev B McKenzie was the first rector at All Saints. In 1940, the vestry voted to move the Chapel of the Mustard Seed to the cemetery at Robinson's Spur. From this point on, the congregation at All Saints assumed responsibilities for the Chapel's maintenance and conservation. In 1946, Mr J Berg donated four acres of land next to the church for a parish hall. Construction began in 1952. The interior was completed in 1961. In 1972, the hall collapsed. It was rebuilt sometime in the mid 1980s. In 2001, a stained glass window, designed by local artist, Terry McGowan, was installed in the church. In its early days, All Saints Whytewold was associated with Netley (OW.063) and Robinson's Spur (OW.079). Whytewold was also served by Wakefield (OW.100) at one point and belonged to the Selkirk Area Parishes before 1982, when the Western Beaches group was formed. Whytewold was joined by St Bartholomew, Winnipeg Beach (OW.104) and St Augustine of Hippo, Gimli (OW.031), until Gimli closed in 1986. At the time of description, services are held year round at Whytewold and the congregation is augmented by cottagers in the summer months.
