They tore down the church on Sunday – timeline

Gas line break at church demolition site NOV 15 – The first sign of trouble was the “rotten egg” smell in the air.

Church removed its pews for open-concept sanctuary

St. Andrew’s in Picton likely has more spoons than any other church in Prince Edward County – good thing too, because they’re often brought out of the kitchen to be used as musical instruments.

The pews will be replaced with upholstered chairs so the sanctuary space will be adaptable for Sunday worship as […]

When the Demolition of a Church sparks Anger...

When the Demolition of a Church sparks Anger…

Anger is a natural and healthy emotion. Suppressed anger robs us of the power to act. Allowed to follow its natural path as a transformational energy, anger can give us clarity and purpose. How can we use our anger about the demolition of the church to express who we want to be as a community?

Church demolition outrages Latchford

I am outraged that on a Sunday morning, without all the necessary permits in place and without appropriate safety precautions to protect passers-by and adjoining property, demolition began on the Methodist-Episcopal Church on Picton Main Street. This appalling action demonstrates a blatant disregard for government process and for the County’s heritage, and shows a total […]
