2016: What We've Done So Far

  • Since a May congregational meeting, Committee members have met individually with professional consultants and together over the phone and in person to develop the best strategy for offering our property for sale to the development community. Our situation is unusual due to the important role played by the corner property in attracting a developer and maximizing our return on our property assets.
  • The Committee has worked on relationships with Gowlings WLG for legal guidance and Colliers Canada for commercial realtor expertise required to list the Trinity property. 
  • The Board has formalized a professional services relationship with Gowlings WLG and Colliers Canada.  
  • The Board and Trustees have signed the necessary resolutions to proceed with a sale and Waterloo Presbytery, representing the United Church of Canada has been included in the process.
  • Throughout this lengthy process the congregation has remained committed to being a church in the city core. The Trinity Board has worked on a rental arrangement for an interim location during the time the site is redeveloped. The goal is to collocate with another church in the Kitchener downtown.
