That Christopher, brought back a lot of memories for me. I attended that church for 11 years, was in the choir, helped to start the Brownies and Girl Guides, was a Sunday School teacher and thoroughly enjoyed  the Youth Club.

Unlike me weedotty, you were an active church attender. I probably missed a lot by not getting involved in church activities. Do you remember the names of curates or rectors there weedotty.

Chris,
Most of the time I was  there the Rev. Edgar Hamilton was in charge.
I beleive the Sunday School superintendent was a Mr. Morrison who had a girl called Cynthia and they lived in the Summerhill Estate.
In Chapter 6 there are many first names only and only a few I recognised.
There used to be a gas station next to the church, I think the Williams owned it. One of their sons Chris died due to a hockey ball hitting his chest and the autopsy showed that he had weak cells in the  heart area. A very sad day as Chris attended the youth guild.

"There used to be a gas station next to the church, I think the Williams owned it."

Hollinger used to sell cars from there, then it became Rosepark Car Sales.  Until recently it was a business selling "rustic" garden furniture and sheds made from untrimmed and unplaned branches.

Now it is a vacant lot, with piles of rubbish.
