Architect: Lanyon & Lynn
Constructed between 1856 and 1857 in memory of John Sinclair in a Venetian style. A unique interior shipyard workers, dockers and sailors at the time of Titanic would have felt at home in its ship-like interior, with its pulpit shaped as a ship’s prow flanked by navigation lights, ship’s binnacle font and the bell of HMS Hood calling worshippers to service. A L-shaped interior has the pulpit on the angle of the two arms.
