As part of the Heritage Week in BC, Murrayville businesses and residents will be celebrating the heritage of the historic Murrayville neighbourhood of Langley on Saturday, February 22, 2020. Neighbours, visitors and history lovers will have an opportunity to visit original buildings, dating from the times of the first pioneer families who settled in this area.
Our Sharon Chapel that started as Sharon Presbyterian Church has been the heart of the settlement at Murray's Corners since its completion and dedication in 1890.
United Churches of Langley will open the building between 1 and 4 pm to welcome our neighbours and friends. We will showcase the church's history and have on display photos of the church and the neighbourhood from many decades, as well as various heirlooms and artefacts.
We will also show our church's vibrant presence in the 21st Century. Visitors will be able to learn about our ministries, hear our ministry stories and enjoy refreshments.
We invite everyone to come and learn about the history of our church and the neighbourhood!
At 130 and counting we will show our neighbours and friends that we are continuing to be a
Vital to the community
Alive as followers of Jesus the Christ
Sustainable for the future!
