Demolition of the Old Church

Demolition of the old church began after Easter in 1994, and by the end of May the site had been flattened. At the same time the hall in the old social centre had been repainted and generally tidied up so that it could be used for Sunday Mass celebrations. Weekday masses were held in the similarly refurbished "green room" behind the stage..
