BK church looks for new locations to worship

After a city ban evicted dozens of churches from public spaces, hundreds of churchgoers attended a service at an unfamiliar location Sunday morning.

Cross Roads Christian Church held its service at a public high school, just one week after being evicted from the school it held service at for four years.

The church was forced to move after the city recent enforcement of a ban on holding worship services in school buildings. Officials said the ruling was to better protect the separation between church and state.

Leaders of the church say they will alternate services between a Bay Ridge golf course and other locations.

Most of the churchgoers say they have faith that the ban will soon be lifted.
