New Vision United Church and The United Property Resource Corporation are working with Ward 3 Councillor Nrinder Nann to continue community consultation on New Vision’s campus at 85 Holton Ave. S. and come back to the City of Hamilton Planning Committee.

Broadview Magazine’s web editor Emma Prestwich published “Inside the Tug of War over St. Giles” under her own handle on April 23, 2021. She writes that Dixon Challoner, chair of New Vision’s Church Council,

“says the congregation would love to see the church preserved if the plan wouldn’t compromise the affordability of planned housing and would be appropriate for the neighbourhood.

‘It’s not as if anyone at New Vision has any sort of antipathy towards the current building, the St. Giles building, it’s not like we want to take it down,’ he says. ‘Obviously, we would be thrilled.'”

Two New Vision Threshold Partners, Jennifer Hompath and Miriam Spires, share thoughts behind New Vision’s redevelopment plans for our Holton Ave. S. campus in this opinion piece published by the Hamilton Spectator on Saturday, April 17 2021.

New Vision is discovering what God is doing in Hamilton’s urban core and participating. We believe that justice for persons experiencing marginalization is fundamental to the creation of an inclusive beloved community. Out worship is experiential, participation, image rich and collective. Our ministry is intercultural and affirming.

New Vision United Church began in 2014.
