  • The 1886 built church has served as a sacred place for many families funerals, weddings and baptisms. It is also one of the last heritage buildings of Angus. 

We would like to see the church preserved and used for the community as part of our heritage, serving future generations as an arts and cultural space.

There is currently a proposal to rezone the church yard from Institutional to Residential thus building 26 townhouse units in place of the church.
