Amana Christian School



Amana Christian School is a small private school
 housed in what was once the Mosgiel Baptist Church and hall. 
The church has been closed for between 15 and 20 years now,
 the small and aging congregation were unable 
to sustain a parish any longer with no new members coming on.
Apart from a new coat of paint and the sign, the church building
 looks exactly as it did when being used for worship.

  4. That seems to be a world wide problem with congregations shrinking. I'm glad the building has been nicely reused!

  6. I'm glad they found a use for it, it would be a shame to let it go- it's really a pretty building, and fence, too.

  7. It's always good to see an old building finding a new use and hopefully a new lease of life.

  8. Nice looking building and it's good that they are using the old church for the school now instead of tearing it down.

    Here is the link to my GF post as I am late getting around to everyone's blogs:
