This is St Columba Church on Otumoetai Road. It is near the Cherrywood shops. My Dad went to Sunday school here. I think this photograph was taken not long after the Church was opened.

The church doesn’t look too different. I think the colour of the roof has changed because it is more than 50 years old. A footpath has been added since the photo was taken and the trees have grown a lot.
