North Delta church at a crossroads

The congregation of Crossroads United Church has voted to proceed with the building project that has been in planning for over two years.

The project has been integral to the vision of the congregation since before it was created 19 months ago as an amalgamation of two former United churches in North Delta.

The new design was the work of Keith Sullivan Donald Architects.

It transforms the current sanctuary into the new multi-purpose hall, kitchen, and storage space, as well as adding a new sanctuary, nursery and sound room on the back of the property.

The project, slated to begin on March 1, will be carried out by Ram Construction, Ltd.

Worship for the congregation of Crossroads United Church will continue in the current building on Sundays until Feb. 27 at 10:30 a.m.

All interested former members of St. John’s Strawberry Hill United Church (the founding congregation of Crossroads worshipping at that site since the 1950s) are welcome to attend this final service of decommissioning on that day.

Once demolition and construction begin, the congregation will worship on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. at the Firehall Centre for the Arts, 11489 84 Ave. The office of the church will be housed in a temporary trailer on the church site at 7655 120 St.
