According to a local saying, this small church in the badlands of Alberta seats 10,000 people, six at a time. It was originally constructed in 1968 and then rebuilt by people incarcerated in Drumheller Institution, a nearby federal penitentiary, in 1991. The Little Church has a pulpit and six single-person pews. At one time, it also featured stained glass windows and a brass bell in its small steeple. The church is a functioning chapel that holds regular services.
