"Land purchased 3 December 1951. Building commenced January 1952. Project finalised and outstanding debts discharged March 1965."

"My family played a leading role in the design, construction and financing of this church. My grandfather, Harry Edwards, led the project and I recall him telling me that his aim with the design of the cross windows was to have it illuminated at night from inside the church so the light of the cross could be seen in the valley. Each weekend during 1952 my grandfather and his sons, Alan Edwards (my father) and Owen Edwards (my uncle) worked to complete the construction. Others helped from time to time. I have attached three photos of documents relating to the construction of the church: a letter from the diocese upon finalisation of the project in 1965 thanking my grandparents and family for their efforts; a calendar seeking donations towards funding the project which identifies key dates; and a drawing of the church as it was originally built." [Only drawing of the church as built is shown here.]
