No. 837 - Moonah - Hopkins Street Gospel Hall (1927-2018)

Moonah is a suburb of Greater Hobart and is located approximately 5 kilometres north of the central business district. Moonah was previously known as South Glenorchy before it was developed as a residential area in the late 19th century.

Very little information is available about this former Gospel Hall situated in Hopkins Street. The building was sold in 2018 and again in 2019. The hall has recently been converted into a house and the cladding has been removed and the weatherboard restored.

The Gospel Hall, which belong to the Christian Brethren, opened on Sunday 13 November 1927. The former Moonah railway line once ran alongside the hall. Apart from an advertisement announcing the hall’s official opening, there are no newspaper reports describing this occasion or information about the building.

Additional information about this former church and the building is most welcome as all articles are continually updated. I can be contacted through this page or my Facebook page "Churches of Tasmania" which is linked here: Churches of Tasmania.
