The expansion project of our Church

Dear Brothers and Sisters!

In view of increasing number of parishioners for several years we held discussions about how to expand our Church hall. Many people can not get into the church, especially in the big church holidays. One of the latest versions (our dream) was the proposal to “move” the church to the east towards the altar for five meters, pre-built foundation. But, unfortunately, that option was dropped after discussion with representatives of Vancouver City Hall.

At the moment, after consultation with engineering companies, the most preferable option is to redesign the internal space, under the chorus and in the corridor. The total length of the hall of the church (from the western wall of the corridor to the altar) will increase about 45%. Currently, in the church can pray together about 200 people, with a strong cluster – up to 350. Under the new conditions, we expect to increase the number of worshipers to 400 and 750, respectively.
At the same time requested to agree to facilitate access for the disabled.

For the final decision on the redevelopment of the church will require consideration by the Church Council, as well as your approval at the General Assembly of the parish.

Please treat actively discussing this very important project for the parish. Send your suggestions to email: webmaster@holyres.org or transfer directly to the Rector Fr Michael.

Very important information: A year ago, we asked Archbishop SERAPHIM, and he blessed our project to expand the church.
