Leith Church and the Friends of Leith are early trailblazers in faith building repurposing. As a small community faced with the loss of their only gathering space, they sought innovative alternative models to maintain the heart of their community — the church and its graveyard, where local son, famed Canadian painter Tom Thompson, is buried. Today, Historic Leith Church hosts the Leith Summer Festival (five concerts over the summer), religious services, an annual Ceilidh, monthly fiddle jams year-round, a Country Market, and have also hosted special events like weddings and reunions.
