The former St. Mary's Church property in Manchester has been sold to another religious organization. 

The Episcopal church at 41 Park St. sold in January for $900,000 to the Christian Fellowship Ministry, according to Keith Kumnick, a principal of brokerage firm Colliers International in Hartford, which represented the seller. 

According to its website, the Christian Fellowship Ministry is a bible-based Pentecostal church led by Rev. Philip Miracle Ennin.

St. Mary's announced plans last year to merge with the St. John's Episcopal Church in Vernon, with members of both parishes worshiping together at the Vernon church. 

The 1.53-acre Manchester property includes three buildings. The church has two wings totaling over 25,000 square feet of space and can accommodate 300-plus with seating, according to the property listing.

There’s also a two-story office building with 2,554 square feet of space on-site, and another two-story building at 33 Park St. with 2,574 square feet.

It’s the latest real estate deal involving church properties in Connecticut.

Elmwood Community Church, a congregational church affiliated with the United Church of Christ, recently listed its building on Newington Road in West Hartford for sale, the Hartford Business Journal reported.

In downtown Hartford, the former St. Anthony’s Roman Catholic Church, at 121-125 Market St., recently sold to an entrepreneur who will retrofit the building for her human resources consulting company and a nonprofit entrepreneur support center.

Carl Zinsser, of Zinsser Agency, represented the Christian Fellowship Ministry in the sale.
