Notes NOTES: In 1880 a wooden church by Pirie & Clyne was built for English tourists to the area. Between 1899 and 1907 Comper's church was built on the same site, consecrated on 3rd August 1907. Comper continued to add stained glass and interior furnishings up to 1933. As fewer English tourists came to the area requiring an Episcopal (Anglican) church, over the 20th century the church proved to be too big for the available congregation. It has been disused as a church since 1997 and declared redundant. The church is being developed as a community arts centre and undergoing a programme of restoration. It is listed Grade A.
