The new date for moving has been scheduled for Friday, October 30th at 9am.
The moving of the Church was to happen on Wednesday October 28th at 9am, however due to extreme weather, the move was cancelled.
Please stay tuned for a new date and time for the moving of the church.
The Sanctuary is now "up in the air"! It is sitting on steel "I" beams and resting on cribs assembled from railroad ties. The property in front of the Sanctuary as well as a path to its future home, has been almost fully excavated. While this excavation is completed (and dozens of truckloads of earth are removed from the property!) the dollys (really big tires) will be delivered. These dollys will be placed under the Sanctuary and will be used to roll/drive the Sanctuary to its new location, then the foundation will be built and poured for the Sanctuary. In two weeks the foundation for the Parish Community Centre will be prepared and then construction will begin!
The dollys have been delivered and are in place. The "I" beams needs to be clamped to the dollys. The windows are covered and protected. The engineers need to complete their inspection and give the go ahead to move. The excavation is completed for the move. We are scheduled to move the Sanctuary next week, likely on Wednesday, then Demik construction will begin building the foundation for the Sanctuary.
The trees in the front yard have been removed, grading to move the building has been completed, angle iron has been installed along the east/west walls and the large north/south beams have been installed and many of the east/west beams have been installed and cribbed in the basement beginning the support of the church. Stay tuned for more details next week.
Our Building Project
St. Luke's Anglican church, a landmark at Hwy #5 at Palermo, was built in 1845 by William Peacock. Our development project will see the moving of the existing heritage Church building to a different location on the site with a brand new foundation. A new Parish Community Centre will be connected to the church providing much needed space for new programs and community events.
