St. Andrew's United Church Sold

David Parsons: chair of the "New Beginnings" committee

It's a bittersweet day for the congregation of St. Andrew's United Church in Sydney. Their 102 year old church is sold.

While members are sad to relinquish their beloved building, they are also relieved to find a buyer.

The writing had been on the brick wall for some time, that it had to go. Declining membership and escalating costs forced the congregation to amalgamate with other churches in the area.

David Parsons is the chair of the "New Beginnings" committee, he spoke to reporter Yvonne LeBlanc-Smith about the sale this afternoon.
