First Prev 1 2 3 4 Next Last

St Paul AME Church dedicated its newly renovated sanctuary with a new balcony, pews and air conditioning on Monday.

Church members marched from the Alexandria Hall to the Church lead by the North Village Band, replicating the original march to the site when the Church was first established.

St. Paul celebrated its 125th Anniversary in 2010.

The church's pastor, Reverend Dr Lanel Guyton, said: “This has been an incredible journey, but we set out to build on a strong foundation, and thanks be to God, we are almost there. St Paul is an icon of the City of Hamilton, and we are proud to renew our commitment to the community we serve.”

The Bishop of the First Episcopal District, the Rt. Rev. Richard F. Norris officiated in a ceremony that saw him receive the keys to the building from Trustee and Chairman of the Church Construction Committee, Mr. Edward Dyer.
