a remarkable church

First United is a big, old dingy-white church with a W-shaped roof, at Hastings and Gore in Vancouver's downtown east side. It's a bustling mission, supported by all of the United churches in the area, as well as lots of other people and groups who want to help.

I read in the Vancouver Sun today that its congregation is disbanding. Fortunately it will continue as a mission. This is a good article about the church and what happens inside.

question: do you know why the roof is shaped like a w?

mompoet - hint: it has something to do with a benefactor
