Riverside United Church

From the Border Cities Star – January 17, 1929

PROPOSED NEW HOME FOR RIVERSIDE UNITED CHURCH CONGREGATION

    This is an architect’s sketch of the proposed new Riverside United Church, which is soon to be erected at the corner of Glidden and Ontario streets, Riverside, at a cost of $10,000.

    Designed by G. Buller Colthurst, architect, Bank of Montreal Building, the church will contain seating capacity for 450 people. It will be constructed of brick and tile with stone dressings and a shingle roof. The plans also provide for class rooms in the basement and an assembly hall which will meet both Sunday school requirements and social activities.

    Rev. R. A. Brook, 48 St. Louis avenue, Riverside, is pastor of the new congregation. W. F. Purdy is chairman of the building committee, and J. E. Jackson, clerk of the congregation.

    Some days ago Dr. Colin G. Young, of Toronto, head of the Home Mission Board of the United Church, gave his formal sanction to the plans while on a visit to the Border.

This classic looking Church still stands, looking nearly the same over 80 years later.
