Located on the road to the Royal Tyrrell Museum, you cannot miss this cute little church. With 6 tiny pews to sit, the kids loved exploring for a few minutes. When we were there on Aug 28, stepping out of the van you could hear the gophers "singing". Very fitting.

I realize that the Little Church is not a designated tourist site...rather it is meant for mediation/contemplation. However, it is very cute and worth maintaining to a higher degree. A sign with more information about the origins or the history of the area would be worthwhile.

We were impressed with little church, but wondered the history behind it! We wondered who built it and why it was built. We wondered about some stones that were placed on the cross, along with some very long strands of human black hair. Is this part of the exhibit?

Thank you for taking the time to comment on our Little Church. We are happy to hear you had such an enjoyable visit. This church was first erected by local contractor Trygve Seland, in co-operation with the Ministerial Association in 1968 and was reconstructed by inmates of the Drumheller Institution in 1991. It was designed as a place of worship... More

If in Drumheller, and especially at neighbouring RTM, you must stop at this little church. It's cute, and seats six. It's free as well.

Worth taking a few minutes after RTM to stop at Little Church. Great rich history in Drumheller and this adds to tapestry.

It costs nothing to go see this little church we were on a badlands tour with Don & Val on most of the places we drove by or visited. They actually still use this little church. It is very tiny I think 6 people may fit in it but a great little piece of history. Hearing the history of this... More

This church will always be in my heart for all time. We got married in this tiny little church on August 28th 2013. And as our anniversary closes in I must let everyone know how wonderful this tiny church is.

Wow that is a very small church. There was a lady in there that said she use to sit in there. She also said there was a guest book back in time.

I have always loved this little church! It's not an exciting find to a kid, but it is kinda neat that it holds "10,000 people - 6 at a time". A great little piece of history!
