Christ Church hosts Heritage Roadhshow this weekend

The church's original Bibles will be appraised at event

A stroke of luck and good timing heralded the return of historic artifacts to Christ Church.

The set of three Bibles, which were stolen in late June, now await their turn to be appraised at the church’s Heritage Roadshow on Aug. 25.

“Getting them appraised will be the first step in keeping them safe,” said Christine Elliott, the student who first discovered the theft of the Bibles, “but it will also be an opportunity for everyone else to get a closer look at a piece of the church’s history.”

The event will be held upstairs in the Christ Church hall, which is located next to the historical church.

“We first thought of hosting such an event, and made the initial inquiries last spring while antique hunting for specific items to complete an exhibit at the church,” said Darla Dickinson, one of the show coordinators.

Light refreshments will be available throughout the day for those who are getting their antiques appraised.

Time slots will be divided up into 15-minute increments per item.

The appraisal cost is $5 per item or $12 for three items. Doors open at 10 a.m.

Anyone who wants to have their antiques appraised needs to register in advance by calling Elliott at 604-869-5402 to secure a time with the appraisers.
