No. 1303 - Sandy Bay - York Street Gospel Hall (1922)

This ‘blog entry’ is one of a series of articles about places of worship that are barely represented in the historical record. Often no images of these buildings have survived. My hope is that these brief articles may result in further information and photographs coming to light enabling a more complete history to be preserved.

The York Street Gospel Hall and Sunday school was built soon after the subdivision of the Sandy Bay Golf links in 1916. the building operated continuously from 1922 to 1981 as a church hall and Sunday school. The Gospel Hall and schoolroom was likely associated with The christian Brethren.

While the building has been converted into a house, traces of the of its origins are still evident with a small bell tower, a lancet window and a church notice board.

Further information about this church is welcomed. I can be contacted through the comments or through the Facebook group "Churches of Tasmania”.
