Originally designed by Isaac Farrell, the interior had a galleried interior for a congregation of 800. The dors in the plinth led to the body of the church while those in the portico led to the gallery. Unfortunately all that remains is the imposing facade, as the interior was gutted in 1999 and the building redeveloped to reflect the church’s changing role in the community. The Ionic portico is inspired by the Villa Malcontenta.
