DIXONS CORNERS — A Dundas County institution has embarked on a relatively rare local event these days — a church expansion.

Community Christian Reformed Church in Dixons Corners broke ground April 30 on the planned 40-person media room, which will adjoin the east side of the church.

Established in 1989 as the offspring of Williamsburg Christian Reformed Church, the independent Community CRC congregation went on to construct its own church building at the current Dixons Corners site in the early 1990s.

The newly initiated $400,000 expansion represents the first significant change to the structure. The work will include renovations to open up the existing main foyer area, said project committee member Bill Byker.

The confident congregation has enjoyed stable attendance numbers since the church’s founding.
