Our Lady Star of the Sea

The original Church building, which was of timber frame and timber wall construction, was built in 1921. It served the Parish well for nearly 60 years, which was much longer than originally expected.

The construction of the current Church was completed in 1980. The building has an octagonal layout, with glulam timber curved portal frames and brick internal and external walls. The design provides a large open internal space with no internal columns to obstruct view or layout. The Church foundation stone was cut in Ireland and blessed in Knock by Pope St John Paul II in September 1979. The completed Church was blessed and dedicated by Bishop Swindlehurst on 12 June 1980.
