Built in 1913 on a design by architect D. W. Bellhouse, using bricks manufactured at the Sidney Brickworks, this church at the northwest corner of Arlington Street and Adele Avenue replaced a small wood frame building from 1908. Construction by contractor Fred Lewis cost an estimated $55,000 and a dedication ceremony took place on 19 October 1913. It is a municipally-designated historic site. Next door is a small private school operated by the church.
