Globe and Mail offers ideas for re-purposing churches
In a recent article on globeandmail.com, reporter Guy Dixon presents a number of ideas worthy of thought and reflection.
He writes about churches in Toronto and Hamilton who have engaged in a process of re-envisioning their use of space and how that space can serve the needs of their neighbourhoods.
Some of these ideas have included removing pews so that space can be used in more flexible ways for community groups, local musicians and other neighbourhood groups.
Affordable housing is an issue that many municipalities face and the article includes ideas on how churches can respond to those needs.
The full article offers food for thought for churches seeking creative solutions and new ideas on being the church.
