Church Building History Presentation

CHURCH BUILDING HISTORY PRESENTATION

As a key event in the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of our church building, Joseph W. Hammond presented a comprehensive lecture on the architectural history of this iconic building. Mr. Hammond was instrumental in the 1995 listing of the church on the National Register of Historic Places. He was also the Clerk of the Works for the 1996-97 re-stabilization of the building due to the failure of multiple truss beams. The presentation was attended by about 40 history buff who also came to a reception afterwards where there was a display of images of the church throughout its history. The lecture was also attended by Diana Stevenson who is the 4th great-granddaughter of the Reverend Samuel Cooke who was the priest who was the driving force in the erection of this church building.
