Grace United Church could be home to the city's newest heritage  designation.In a letter received from Serge Lavoie, the Municipal Heritage Committee Chairman, he recommends the Heritage label for the church located at 18 Balaclava Street.  The building was purchased recently and fears are the building could be torn down though nothing to that effect has been substantiated.  The original church, built in 1873, is the only known St.Thomas Methodist Church.  In 1909 a wind storn damaged the existing structure, so tenters called for both a new church to be built and the old one demolished.  The new church was completed in 1910.
