The friendly church at the beach has been sold and will most likely be developed into apartments. 

Union Congregational Church on Tewksbury Street – just a stone’s throw from Winthrop Beach – recently sold its church building and its large parking lot to Paul J. Ferrara Sr. – a developer based on Revere Street.

The church property went for $200,000 and the parking lot for $100,000 in a recent sale, according to filed property records.

The church address is 22 Tewksbury St. and the lot is at 15 Perkins St.

Contacted by phone recently, Ferrara said that they are still in the beginning stages of deciding exactly what to do with the property, but he said it would be a new residential development.

There are no official filings or building permits with the Town just yet, but he did mention that he could be seeking around nine units for the expansive property – which is already in a residential neighborhood.

The church building has been in existence for many decades in the Crystal Cove neighborhood.
