HALIFAX: Halifax-Park Church Congregational Church History up to 1868.


The need of enlarged accommodation for the increasing population of Halifax, prompted the three Independent congregations (1864) to build, by an united effort, a new chapel near to the People's Park, Sir F. Crossley generously contributing 1,000 towards its erection, and laying in 1867 the foundation-stone of the building. It is intended to seat nearly 1,000 persons. Its style will be the early geometrical Gothic. The cost will be about £9,000, exclusive of school-rooms to be added hereafter. It is not yet opened for public worship.
