NEW LAUNCESTON GOSPEL HALL
Large Congregations at Opening Services
The Gospel Hall in Elizabeth-street Launceston, was opened during the week-end, when special meetings were held. The first of the series commenced on Friday evening, the hall being well filled. On Saturday afternoon a special opening meeting was conducted, and although preparation had been made for large numbers, it was impossible to find seating accommodation for all present.

One thought on “Gospel Hall, Launceston

  1. Hi
    I was wondering who the gospel hall in 66a Launceston was sold to as there doesn’t seem to be any work done on property or any plans in with council
