Demolished to make way for an extension to the Jervis Hospital. “On Wednesday last the foundation-stone of a new- Presbyterian Mission Church, in course of erection on a desirable site in Jervis-street, was laid by the Rev. Mr. Rogers. The building will be in the Early English style of architecture, and, comparatively speaking, plain in appearance. The material for the front will be Co. Dublin grey stock bricks, with red and white bands and arches. The tracery will be composed of Bath stone, and of Portland stone in parts most exposed to weather. The interior will be of a simple but neat character. The plan comprises large school-rooms, which can also be used for lecturerooms. The entire cost will be about £2,000. It is computed there will be sitting room in the church for 500 persons. The design is by Mr. Helton, of Perth, the architect of the Rutland-square church. The builders are Messrs. Crowe and Son, of Great Brunswick- street.” The Dublin Builder, October 15 1864.
