The church, built in 1914, has undergone a spectacular 3-year reno, taken out all its pews so chairs can be used in any configuration, revamped the kitchen to make it 3-times bigger (it's part of a drop-in lunch program), put in automatic solar blinds, installed the largest rooftop solar system of any church in GTA and left its old chimney standing because it has endangered chimney swifts. It opens for services again at end of the month. September 24, 2013. (Bernard Weil/Toronto Star via Getty Images)
