The Living Water Wayside Chapel
Location: 15796 Niagara Pkwy, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON L0S 1J0
The Living Water Wayside Chapel is just over an hour’s drive from Toronto.
The Living Water Wayside Chapel is a tiny white building snuggled neatly between two trees beside Walker's Country Market. It was built in 1964 by the Niagara Falls Christian Reformed Church. This chapel is famous for being the Guinness Book of World Records holder for the smallest chapel in the World.
Inside the chapel it has a floor space of about 78 square foot (13 feet by 6 feet) or 7.25 square meters (4 meters by 1.8 meters). Every Easter, weather permitting, a morning sunrise ceremony is held to commemorate the day. When there are no ceremonies, the chapel is open to visitors 24 hours a day with two bibles and a guest logbook that can be signed.
We were lucky to visit this cute Chapel. We were able to go inside the Chapel (even during Covid).
This is a very unique photo opportunity, stop by and see the World’s smallest chapel, relax and enjoy a moment of spiritual reflection.
We then went to the pretty Town of Queenston.
