Edmonton is one of the largest northern urban centers in the world. Located in Canada, Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta. The city has a strong history as a trade center, and it served as the last major stop for the Klondikers during the Gold Rush. This is why we Edmontonions call our city "The Gateway to the North"

Please enjoy my perspective of one of of the fastest growing urban areas this side of China.

Christ Church

Christ Church is built in a very English Tudor style. Just blocks away from my house it offers a wonder spot to loose yourself in. I have cut and pasted a portion for the churches website below.

In 2002 the congregation decided that it was a "Time to Build". The church would be celebrating its 100th birthday in 2009 and the foundation and the roof were showing signs of age and we needed more space as a result of our continued growth.
Once the construction was completed, we were left with a Memorial Garden and a lawn that had more ruts and weeds in it than lawn. The congregation decided that since we were blessed with so much space around the church that we should develop an oasis in the middle of Oliver that could be enjoyed by the church members as well as the community as a whole. It was a "Time to Plant".
Three years have passed and the last piece of this phase of our development was completed in October 2005 - the Garden Pavilion. We now have a place that blends in with the other buildings on our property to store all of our garden tools.
