Designation Authority: Wallace (R.M.)
Present Owner: Kola Church of the Advent and Cemetery Corporation

The modest Kola Anglican Church of the Advent is one of the oldest churches in southwestern Manitoba still on its original site. Built by the first wave of British-Ontario settlers to the Arawana district, the structure is an excellent early example of Gothic-inspired design invitingly set on a gentle knoll where its economical but deft features, such as a small bellcote and east window tracery, are displayed to full effect. The largely intact interior, with its warm natural wood finishes and serviceable furnishings, further demonstrates the church’s straightforward qualities as a pioneer-era house of worship.
