Pugwash Church to Close After Christmas

Another Pugwash area church will close its doors at the end of December.

St. George’s Anglican Church on Russell Street will suspend its services after Christmas celebrations. The parish will transfer the property to the Anglican Diocese at month end, while the formal closing, a de-commissioning service, will likely take place in February.

Like so many Christian churches, St. George’s suffered from declining membership leaving the administration and maintenance to an ever-aging few.

In recent months the parish explored the possibility of selling some or all of its property while seeking to maintain Sunday services in the existing building as a worship centre. Certain individuals, community groups, and the Village Commission were approached as possible buyers, but without success.

The United Church de-commissioned its small church in Port Howe earlier and like the nearby Gospel Hall, the two were sold to become a private residences.

Rural churches are in decline in North America, but Christianity continues to flourish in the world. Modern western culture clashes with the revolutionary teaching of Jesus Christ, while thousands are joining the movement daily in the far flung corners of the globe.

Canada and the United States still refer to God in anthems and slogans, but to all intents and purposes, God has been formally removed from public institutions. The U.S. President still makes superfluous references to the deity, but Canada’s Justin Trudeau makes no such pretence.

It is a real shame that this church never recovered from the generational divide of 1994, due to 2 girls becoming sacramental servers, resulting in a couple of the largest families in the congregation to break off into their own worship space and service that welcomed everyone.
