On Tuesday, a group of local churchgoers gathered in front of the Discovery Church in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia, to help with restoration work.
They were hoping to raise $100,000 for a restoration of the historic church, which was gutted in the 1980s.
They also wanted to raise money for an old car that was destroyed by a fire in the 1950s.
The Halifax church was built in the 1790s by George and Elizabeth Stocks, and has been on the market for nearly 40 years.
In 2009, a man broke into the church and vandalized the exterior and gutted the interior.
The church was later rebuilt in a style that was similar to the modern church, but with new stucco, stained glass windows, and wooden benches.
The man was later caught, and he pleaded guilty to burglary.
But the church remains on the property, and the owners are planning to rebuild the interior, restore the exterior, and reopen the church.
The restoration of this church was a challenge.
We needed to build the foundations and start to restore the interior and get the floor to look like it’s in its original condition,” said Dan DePasquale, a member of the church’s board.
The church was rebuilt in the same style as it was when it was first built in 1680.
The exterior of the old church, built in a similar style to this church, was destroyed during the fire.
But it’s now looking good.
The building is expected to be fully restored by mid-March.
