The beautiful Mission-style South Berkeley Community Church, originally Park Congregational Church, was designed by Hugo W. Storch in 1912 and is City of Berkeley Landmark No. 13. The church is in need of restoration, and BAHA will kick off the capital restoration campaign with a lecture on Wednesday, 19 October at 7:30 pm, to be held at the church, 1802 Fairview Street at Ellis.
