From Devonport Baptist web site:

The young Church continued to grow, especially the number of children attending Sunday School and, despite having the use of a building across the street each Sunday morning the Church recognized it was impossible to expand further on the existing site.

In 1958 visionary leadership led to the purchase of two large blocks in William Street and in 1960 a large shed was erected, a brick making machine installed, and the entire Church family rolled up their sleeves and made all the 89,000 cement bricks used to construct the hall complex on our present site. The halls were opened in 1962 and the largest hall became the home of the Devonport Baptist Church until our present building was completed and opened in December 1972.
