Sign of the Cross at Peel Street

The original Zion congregational school and chapel was opened in 1847. It consisted of two storeys with the chapel above the school and was enlarged in 1859.

A new building on Peel Street which can be viewed on Old Hyde was opened in April 1899.

One hundred years later it was replaced by the modern new Zion Church which opened in 2000.

A contribution to signs, signs.

    Sunday service at Zion is at 11 am. A warm welcome awaits any one who attends. Good photo Gerald.

  2. What a history.

    Please have a good Thursday.

  3. You have given us a twofer...a big cross and a little cross. What a fine contribution this week. Love the little church. genie

  4. without the crosses, it would be hard to identify this as a church!
    I like how the subsequent buildings are described as new (1899) and modern (2000)!
