As we will move from Wattle Grove Baptist Church soon, I take some photos of this church in order to keep a good memories and also found some info about this church and its history:
The church was started to build in 1938 after Mr.Max Wells and his family bought a property on Gavour Road in 1933 (Church service were held in the little hall of this property at the beginning). Many volunteers contribute to build this church, they even made the cement bricks by themselves.
Being interrupted by the way, but the activity resumed in 1946, thanks to the hardworking volunteers and family of Mr.Max. Well, the church was opened in 1947 to the glory of God.
Today, we can see the two engraved stone plaques on the exterior wall of the building, they are white marble plaques with the following engraved words on it and the words were painted in black:
On one marble plaque, it was engraved:
To the Glory of God,
THE STONE WAS LAID
BY FRANK JOHN WELLS ESQ
ON 29TH APRIL 1939
On another marble plaque:
To the Glory of God
ON BEHALF OF VOLUNTEER WORKERS
THIS BUILDING WAS OPENED BY
O.D.T. STREET ESQ
15TH NOVEMBER 1947
THE COMPLETION WAS DELAY BY

Thanks, Wattle Grove Baptist Church, May you be blessed!
