If You Build It, They Will Come
There is a well-known line from the movie, Field of Dreams, that goes, “If you build it, they will come.” While the person who said this line was referring to a baseball field, and not a church, it still fits the situation at St. John’s Church, in the Parish of Richmond, NB, quite well.
As you may recall, the parish voted to build a new church and parish centre. The design is simple yet practical, it provides for congregational worship, three Sunday school classrooms, a nursery, modern washroom facilities, kitchen and storage space. The one and only step in the entire building is the one up into the sancturay. It is warm, comfortable, useful for many kinds of functions and accessible by all.
