Description :
The first Church of Christ at Norwood was formed by members of the Stepney Christian Church and met in the original Congregational chapel in Chapel Street. From 1888, under Pastor Andrew Rankine, the church flourished. When membership reached 600, land on the other side of Chapel Street was purchased and a building able to seat 700 was built in the 1890s. The Norwood congregation were also responsible for begining churches in the adjoining suburbs of Maylands and Dulwich. Church numbers eventually waned and the church was closed and sold in 1957.
