Morinville – St. Andrew’s Anglican Church was demolished Tuesday morning, nearly two months after the church was destroyed in an early morning fire.

The church, destroyed June 17, was home to local Anglicans as well as the Father’s House Christian Fellowship. The latter faith group used the building for offices and a local youth ministry.

It is believed the fire started in the area of a storage shed at the rear of the church. RCMP declared the fire suspicious three days later; however, police have not released an update on the investigation since that time.

Though the fire rapidly consumed the church, the steeple, bell and cross were not destroyed. Those religious symbols were lowered successfully Tuesday morning.
