Landmark South Shore Church Expanding

At a time when many Nova Scotia churches are closing because of declining congregations, a South Shore House of Worship is actually expanding! The congregation at the 94 year old Bridgewater Baptist Church on King Street has ambitious plans for a 5.2 million dollar new building. They've just about reached the goal and approval's been given for the project. Pastor, Dr. Brian MacArthur, tells us expanding wouldn't be possible without a growing and dynamic community behind it.

Dr. MacArthur also says the new facility will help in the church's expanding community outreach.

The new Bridgewater Baptist will rise on a parcel of already-purchased land just off Glen Allen Drive. Its hoped to be ready for parishoners in time for Easter next year (2015).
