The site was a pine scrub and a good deal of the cypress pine used in the church was cut on the site. In 1903 a 4 m extension was added and a choir loft built, and alterations made to the sanctuary. It served as a church till 1938 when St. Columba's Church was opened next to it. After new church built, served as parish hall. Sold in 1986, relocated and converted to a house.
