At 50 years old, the chapel is a bit rundown—the flower gardens are kept up—but nontheless well worth a visit if you're in the Kawarthas.

Peterborough Church In A Theatre

A brand new church is coming to a theatre new you. Yes, Peterborough City Church is starting at The Market Hall on Sunday, January 10th.

It's a novel idea—opening a church and trying to grow a congregration in a downtown theatre at a time when churches are struggling.

The church will be run by Reverend Chad Trivett and his wife Sasha, and services will take place there every Sunday morning at 10 a.m.

Trivett, who has been pastor of two other churches in Ontario, also previously started a church in Tokyo, Japan. 

Learn more about Chad and Sasha below...
