When you walk through the doors you step back in time. Although, there are modern updates much what you see replicates what it was like when people worshipped there. Cameron Graham and Pete Telford shared the story of the church and the work that was done to restore it.
The group's website tells the story of the church and the restoration work that was done. When the group began its work, the building was in great disrepair. The photos show the work that was done.
Currently, three church services are held each year. The building is also used for concerts. It has great accoustics.
The churchyard holds the Leith Cemetery. Noted artist, Tom Thomson is buried there. Many of the former residents are buried there. A binder containing the listings of all buried there is available to help visitors locate graves of interest.
The stained glass window shown above is a more modern addition and when the restoration work was done, it was kept in place as it had been featured as a Christmas postage stamp.
Thank you to all those who worked to restore and preserve this wonderful part of our local history.
