Vintage Church


 This is St Andrew's church which is found downtown at the corner of King St W and Simcoe St. It was built in 1876 and now has heritage protection. As you can see it has become surrounded by office towers but the recent building boom of condos has meant that more and more people are joining the congregation.

It's a beautiful building and really stands out against all those towering buildings.

A lovely old church. Downtown churches used to struggle as people moved to the suburbs, but the new condos have helped expand the congregations.

I am glad to see that St. Andrew's has heritage protection... otherwise there would be a condo there. †

The old church certainly holds its ground there Pat, and how good that it is being used more because of the situation!

It is a beauty. In an odd way, the plain modern buildings surrounding it make it stand out even more than otherwise.
