A popular Christian community centre has been torn down, with the Cross Point Church and a Christian college also set to be torn down.
The former Crosspoint Chapel was a popular spot for worship and a popular venue for children’s playgroups, and has been in the community since 1884.
It is understood that plans are in the works to demolish the church and convert it into a Christian school.
St Mark’s Church and Crosspoint College, which were built in 1891 and 1897 respectively, have been the subject of community discussions and have been described as a community centre, with a school on site.
The Crosspoint campus is one of Sydney’s oldest and most well-known schools.
It was established in the 1870s, and was later renamed St Mark’s University, after the Anglican minister of education.
The school was built on the site of the former Cross Point Chapel, which was used as a Catholic school for over 50 years.
The church was one of the main centres for children in the area, and there were a number of schools within the town.
The old Crosspoint was demolished in the 1970s.
A spokeswoman for the community, who asked not to be named, said the church had been a focal point for children, and that the community was working with the owners of the property to restore it.
“They have been very keen to restore the church as a place for the children to play, and they’re working on a plan to do that,” she said.
