Hazel Glen. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 March 1923
Hazel: Glen. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) The Ven. Archdeacon Hindley re cently dedicated the church hall and named it St. John's. The building has-been thoroughly. renovated. The inside is lined with three-ply and plaster sheets with dark mouldings. A chancel screen worth £70 adds greatly to the appearance. The sanc tuary itself is yet, to be remodelled. The .expenditure was large, but ren dered possible by the generosity of well-wishers of the church. /Church furniture to the value of ~60 bring the church up-to-date with the excep tion of a baptismal font; which we hope to get soon. The communion linen, curtains, etc., reflect great credit upon the ladies responsible for the choice (and fine -needlework. For years - we have worshipped in a dilapi dated building, and much appreciate the change to a well-fitted church. - The general list for the Eltham di vision of Evelyn may be seen at the post offices, police and railway sta tions within the division.
