"The province of British Columbia announced on April 10 [2015] that it will give $1 million to Christ Church Cathedral's building campaign, which is raising money to repair the cathedral's roof, add a new bell tower and expand its community outreach kitchen". "The campaign, called 'Raise the Roof, Ring the Bells, Feed the Hungry', aims to raise $7.5 million for a 'badly needed roof' and an 'all-new illuminated glass bell spire', and to double the size of its kitchen, which feeds 100 people a day during the coldest months of the year. Construction preparations on the project began in April [2015]". The donation was announced by Sam Sullivan, the local MLA for Vancouver-False Creek and former mayor of the city. "The bell tower is one of the most striking elements of the campaign: for 40 years, it has been a dream of the congregation, a dream that will now be embodied by Sarah Hall's 'Welcoming Light', a series of glass-art panels that will cover a spire that holds four bells". "While a church's decision to spend more than a million dollars [i.e. $1.5 million] on something purely aesthetic might raise some eyebrows, [Dean Peter] Elliott sees the new spire as being a vital form of outreach. 'I think the Anglican tradition has a long history of being a champion of performing and visual artists', he said. 'There is, to the spiritual life, a strong link with the arts, with beauty. It's one of the ways that we're drawn to the divine'."

Notes
A description of the recent history and ministry background of Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver BC. It is a "high diversity" congregation where "at least 20 over cent of congregants represent diverse groups other than the usual white, Euro-Canadian, heterosexual majority of Vancouver's general majority". In 2004 the congregation polled its members in order "to develop a new action plan for community development". "Integration was defined as a combination of: Living up to the Parish vision of open doors, open hearts, open minds; Incorporating newcomers into the life of the parish; Offering a community to which to belong; Offering worship enabling all to participate; Reaching out to meet the needs of all people in the local community; Encouraging in stewardship the active participation of all parishioners". The questionnaire identified and ranked the six factors most responsible for integrating the Christ Church Cathedral community. In order of priority they were: Educational programs for Christian formation e.g. Education for Ministry (EFM); Worship services; Meeting rooms in the basement; Outreach ministry; and Stewardship of treasure.

Notes
"It was standing-room-only for some at Christ Church Cathedral, Vancouver, as a celebration of the end of major building work November 17 [2016] drew nearly three times the number of people organizers expected. .... Organizers had planned for 300 people to attend the event, marking the end of the latest phase of a 20-year repair and renovation project, [Dean Peter] Elliott said, but 850 people showed up". "With a cost of $9 million ($1 million of which came from the B.C. government), the latest 18-month phase is one of the most important elements of the decades-long project, which has a total budget of $20 million. One of the main goals of the project, a 'seismic upgrade' meant to make the building more resistant to earthquake damage, is now complete". "The most recent phase also saw the construction of a new bell spire of stained glass, containing four bronze bells custom-cast in France -- to the knowledge of church officials, the only stained-glass bell spire in the world, Elliott said".
