Easter church service in Africville

The last time an Easter church service was held in Africville was in 1967, the year of Canada’s Centennial.  This Easter, in the year of Canada’s 150th birthday, voices will once again be heard on the site of Africville, thanks in part to funding from the province.  Communities, Culture and Heritage Minister Tony Ince announced the province is boosting the Nova Scotia 150 Forward fund by an additional $2 million. The new funding will support 132 projects across the province.  The funding will enable communities to host celebrations and commemorate significant historical events.
