Our History

The Early Years

As in so many cases, the story of Slave Lake Alliance had a humble beginning. The summer of 1971 began with Sunday School meetings, morning Bible study and evening service each Sunday held on the premises of C J Schurter School. 

Phase 1

Sod was turned at the present location in the spring of 1975 and the construction of Phase 1 began. On December 7, 1975, the first service was held in the new sanctuary. Service of dedication was held on January 18, 1976.

Phase 2

1980 saw the building the two-floor learning centre adding much-needed space to the existing structure. Housing Sunday School classrooms, office space, banquet hall, kitchen, and fireside room. 

Phase 3

The year 2000 saw the expansion of the sanctuary and foyer. Increasing the seating capacity and adding two offices and extra foyer space.
