Since 2010, the Cape Charles Christian School has operated in a beautiful stone building, the former First Presbyterian Church of Cape Charles, built in 1925. Recently the former sanctuary was renovated and made available for the first time in the school’s daily activities. Now known as Heyward Hall, the renovation created a multi-use event space which will bring new life to the former sanctuary while maintaining and respecting its historical bones. Heyward Hall’s beautiful and very functional space will also be available for wedding ceremonies, meetings and conferences.

On Saturday, November 15, the school hosted a dedication of Heyward Hall. Attendees were able to witness the wonderful new community space and take part in a celebratory blessing of Heyward Hall.
An exciting component to this project was the unveiling of the magnificent stained glass windows that have been shielded by a protective plexiglas that had aged and grayed over the years. The stunning array of 34 stained glass windows was carefully and meticulously restored, creating a perfect venue for anything from a wedding to a conference. The school has launched a fundraising campaign allowing donors to dedicate a window in honor or memory of someone significant to them.
“Take a drive by one evening and witness the magnificent stained glass windows or stop by for a tour during the day,” says John Burdiss, CCCS Board Chairman.
