Seamen's Chapel

seamenschapel

The Church of England bought the former Union Bank of Australia, 1889, 4 High Street, cnr Cliff Street in 1930 to serve as the Flying Angel Mission to Seamen. I assume the Church built the small building next door for use as the Seamen's Chapel 1937-1960.

Both Chapel and Bank are now part of Notre Dame University, which is converting the Chapel for use a gallery to show the work of architecture students and local artists.
