Church for Sale

The nearby Anglican Church closed over a year ago, and now it's up for sale.   Unfortunately, this may not be the only Church in the area to close, as the Uniting Church that we attend is also seriously considering its future in view of an ageing congregation and declining numbers.  Although nothing is imminent, the medium to long term outlook isn't great.

In spite of first impressions when glancing at the sign, only one Church is for sale.  On closer reading, the reference to "both" is a reference to the fact that the adjoining manse is also for sale.

I haven't enquired what is to become of the stained glass, which includes an impressive "West window", completed only a few years ago.
