Door of Hope Christian Church, Launceston
From their website: Since 1884, Door of Hope Christian Church has been meeting in different locations across Launceston allowing people to join together in community and worship our great God. And since 2003, we’ve been inhabiting the former Patons and Baldwins (later Coats Patons) factory, again another significant institution in the life of our city.

The opening of the new Primitive Methodist Mission Church at Mulgrave
