St Faith’s Sunday School War Memorial Hall

The Sunday School War Memorial Hall was opened at St Faith's Anglican Church in Hawke Street, New Brighton, on 8 December 1945. A marble memorial plaque was unveiled to commemorate the occasion.

A war memorial organ and a congregational roll of honour were dedicated in the church itself on 11 December 1949. The church is currently closed because of earthquake risk and no photograph of either is available.
