IMG_1287Several years ago, Manor Road United began the process of exploring directions for updating the church based on needs and capacity.

We have been working hard to clarify our mission as a congregation, and to find a financially sustainable model for our ongoing ministry. Plans came into place to sell a portion of our land and redevelop our worship sanctuary into a multi-purpose worship and community space, and our lower level into a daycare space.

Reverend Debra Schneider has worked alongside Neil Jacoby (Chair of the Redevelopment Committee), and Jill Strapp (Chair of Trustees) as well as many dedicated congregational members in bringing these plans to fruition.

In 2015 two lots were sold to the City of Toronto with the promise the land would be turned into parkland for neighbourhood use.

In 2016 we underwent renovation construction of our remaining building and property to modernize and redesign the remaining space. This has allowed us to continue to serve both our needs as a congregation, and the wider community as a place of gathering.

We documented our renovation construction in pictures on our Redevelopment blog.
