The Congregational Church
The Congregational Church, in Napier, stands in Carlyle Street, close to Clive Square, and is a wooden building of Gothic architecture. It is built on a large section, and the Sunday school stands at the rear. The interior of the church is bright and attractive, and seating accommodation is afforded for about 250 worshippers. The Church possesses a small organ, and the singing is led by an efficient choir, under the conductorship of Mr. F. L. Derbyshire. The Rev. R. Mc-Naughton is minister in charge.
