One of the bigger, if not the biggest church in Sauble Beach, is having growing pains.
Sauble Christian Fellowship Church has applied to South Bruce Peninsula to expand its footprint.
Deputy Mayor Jay Kirkland, at the February 5th regular council meeting, says the church has applied to have some land to the south of the facility, on Southampton Parkway, zoned to allow additional parking for church-goers.
Kirkland also says some interest, although unofficial, has been shown to expand the existing building.
There are four lots extending to Carson's Lane that can be developed into parking so that parking at the church would be in front and to the south of the building.
The current parking to the north could be eliminated and if so, it's possible building expansion could happen there.
According to Councillor Kathy Durst, the Christian Fellowship Church has a huge following, particularly in the summer in Sauble Beach and boasts a strong youth program as well.
Deputy Mayor Kirkland says he's impressed with the potential plans of the church stating "It's nice to see a church in our area expanding. You don't see too many in today's society, expanding."
A bylaw approving the land development request will come before council at its next regular meeting, February 19th.
