Special needs met in a special place

Several decades ago, five lots of city land on McKercher Drive were donated to the Presbyterian Church in Canada by the McKercher family, long-time members of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. A plan was eventually put together to develop a ministry in the College Park area and McKercher Drive Presbyterian Church was established. The congregation grew to several hundred with a thriving Sunday School and three Sunday services.

However, the dynamics changed over the years. People moved away; members aged. Last year the decision was made to amalgamate with St. Andrew’s Presbyterian and sell the building on McKercher Drive.

The church facility was sold to Light of the Prairies, an organization that works with mentally challenged individuals and provides specific programming for those with complex needs.
