Historical Notes: The building used as a church was originally a dance hall which was converted in 1945. A new church or cathedral had been planned for this block of land since the turn of the century [ie 1900]. Two world wars, financial difficulties and roading designations being placed on the land had prevented the plans being realised (info from caption).
