Pretty Little Church

This is St David's Anglican Church which is found in the west end of the city. It was probably built in the 1950s judging by its style but it seems that the church is joining with 3 other Anglican churches to build one new church and selling off the old ones to pay for the new one. That means that this little beauty will be disappearing but many churches are having problems with shrinking congregations so it is not surprising.

A fine building indeed. And that's life, old things make way for new. Have a good week!

Thanks for showing this little midcentury gem

This beautiful little church may be sold to another church congregation. If so, the building will survive as many have.

That's a perfect title for this post! It is pretty.

shrinking congregations often means condos

It does look like the fifties. Must be nice and bright, love that stained glass cross! Sad in a way but c'est la vie !

Has that 50s look, you're right.

Lois said...

Oh no! Too bad it can't be used for something else. It is lovely.

i can't tell if that just clear glass or stain glass? love it either way. ( :

To tear this down would be a travesty. Perhaps it will be repurposed. As a bar or restaurant or a beauty salon.

Michelle said...

Hopefully, this building will be saved. It is a beauty.

A beautiful little church !

Halcyon said...

I hope this church won't get destroyed. It's rather cute!

Kate said...

I wonder what they will do with the building after the congregation has vacated?

genie said...

OOPS....I forgot my churches yesterday. Beth is going to fuss at me :-( This is a really sweet one, but it needs one of our traditional Anglican red doors. I am so silly about the red doors. Maybe in Canada and the United Kingdom you do not have the red doors like here in the US. The snow that is left on the ground really adds to the photo.

So you think iIt will be sold as a tear-down? That is a shame. Not surprising though, as you say.
