The Packet (Clarenville) - - Front page - BY JONATHAN PAR­SONS

One of the four church build­ings in the Bon­av­ista Penin­sula re­gion de­con­se­crated and sold by the Angli­can Church in re­cent months is not set to be re­pur­posed into a res­i­dence, or torn down com­pletely, but will con­tinue on as a cen­tre for wor­ship within its com­mu­nity.

In Keels, Bon­av­ista Bay, St. Phillips’ Angli­can Church was pur­chased by the Vista In­de­pen­dent Bap­tist Church in Clarenville — the sale was fi­nal­ized on Tues­day, Oct. 23.

In an in­ter­view with The Packet Bap­tist Pas­tor Les Chymist says the Clarenville Bap­tist Church has long had a con­nec­tion with Keels, with peo­ple from the com­mu­nity trav­el­ing to Clarenville as part of their con­gre­ga­tion.
