Robertson-Wesley United Church is 100 years old and young! The present church's construction was started in the spring of 1913 and continued during the summer, fall and winter. The congregation held its first Sunday service in the new building on January 25th, 1914. This historic church has been a landmark in the city since then. Initially it was the western end of the City of Edmonton. Over time it has come to mark the western end of the downtown area. Its towering spire, brick faÃ§ade and stained glass windows have impressed area residents and visitors over the last century and will continue to do so in the future.
The building has and continues to provide worship, outreach and community services to a wide range of people and groups spread near and far in and around Edmonton.
Many people came to visit and support Robertson-Wesley during the anniversary year to celebrate the past, experience the present and help us plan for the future of this special building in the history of Edmonton.
