This building was situated in Bread Street, off Church Street. It was built in 1862 as the first of his numerous churches by the Reverend Arthur Douglas Wagner and it was designed by G F Bodley. It served one of the poorest quarters of the town. The church was never consecrated and closed in 1922 except for services for the deaf and dumb. It reopened in November 1928 but closed again in 1948 and used by the electricity board until it was demolished in 1965.
