History

Work on the current building, designed by Eden Smith, began in May 1912. Opening services at the new church took place on 21 December 1913.

In 1923, the Parish Hall, with an auditorium and gymnasium below, was completed, as well as the vestries on the north side of the chancel. The original Eden Smith design was completed in 1938, including a chapel on the south side.

A two-story addition on the west side was built in 1955 as an Education Centre. This now houses offices, meeting rooms and a childcare centre.
