St. Andrews United Church
At the time of writing, the tall bell tower of St. Andrews is receiving a beautiful facelift. This steeple makes the church a highly visible historic landmark and is located in one of Nanaimo's oldest neighbourhoods.
The Old City Quarter is a short stroll from Downtown Nanaimo and this historic property still comprises the church, hall, manse and grounds.
St. Andrews has a rich history because of its association with the national merger of the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational churches in 1925. A large porporation of Presbyterians voted against union and the subsequent legal battle over the division of property was the only union litigation case in BC.
Situated at a prominent corner in Nanaimo, St. Andrews is along side some of the city's best shops, restaurants and other heritage sites.
