Algoma Diocese discusses closing almost half of Anglican churches in Muskoka

Muskoka’s Anglican community might loose almost half of their churches.
The Anglican Journal recently reported the Diocese of Algoma has suggested closing 16 churches out of the 35 in the Muskoka region.
According to the Journal, this is due to the declining membership at many of these churches.
The report states that the ‘change team’ will have its first meeting next Monday to discuss this matter, when the recently former Bishop Stephen Andrews visits the region before starting his new job in Toronto.
Andrews told the Journal that the cemeteries attached to the churches that are slated for closure will need to be taken into account as well.
At this point no final decisions have been made and Andrews has told the Journal that nothing is set in stone at this point.
The Journal did not indicate which churches were being considered for closure.
Moose FM reached out to Archdeacon Harry Huskins with the diocese, however he declined to comment on this situation.
