  1. I am saddened to hear that St George’s Presbyterian Church, cnr Linwood Avenue and Gloucester Street has been demolished because it was so damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. I attended church and Sunday School there along with my two sisters and two brothers in the 1950s. The Reverend Irving Rutherford conducted my mother’s funeral service in 1983.
    Unfortunately I do not have a photo of this church which was so much a part of my early life. Are you able to provide me with any photos of the church and the church hall? Thanking you. Lynne Winsloe

    • Thank you for sharing with us, it is indeed sad when those associations of the past are lost. We may be able to supply a photo graph but there will be a delay. Can you can you make contact directly by email so we can keep in contact? Thanks – Yvonne
