By Sir John J Burnet, 1908, two storey with steeply pitched overhanging slated roof, with the church on the upper floor and (originally) community rooms below consisting of near double height library and games rooms with large arched window openings in heavily buttressed wall. Built in flat red facing brick and glazed red brick, except for the harled and leaded windows of the nave, which is built on top of large arched windows of the massively buttressed hall below. The south end porch and vestry were added in 1922. Internally exposed brick finish, now painted white, the nave has exposed rafters leading through a round brick arch to the chancel with its two small rounded headed niche-like windows with stained glass. Sculpture, Tree of Life, by A Carrick Whalen, was destroyed in a fire. Replica replacement hangs over the paired entrance doors to the nave.
