Local residents aim to save historic Third Avenue United Church

A small group of volunteers have come together to promote alternate uses for the Third Avenue United Churchout of concern that the historic building could eventually be sold and destroyed to make way for new development, according to a story in today's Star Phoenix.

If approved by the church, the non-profit organization will promote the location for community events and concerts. "A building of this size and beauty shouldn’t only be in existence for four hours on a Sunday morning. So that’s really what the (Third Avenue Centre) is here to do, is to facilitate the rest of the week and bring in revenue that the church can’t,” said Mark Turner, a representative of the group.

Over the years, attendance at the 1000 seat church, which is located at the corner of 3rd Avenue and 24th Street in Saskatoon's Central Business District, has dwindled to about 100 people per week making it difficult to manage expenses.
