1897: CHRIST P.E. CHURCH GROWING
The building occupied by Christ P.E. Church is now occupied by an Hispanic church and day care center. Before the church was constructed, the earliest parishioners met at Kirk's Hall, on corner of Hamilton Avenue and Hudson Street, across the street from the old Hamilton Avenue M.E. Church. There was an unfortunate schism in the original Christ P.E. Church back in the 1960's, resulting in most of the congregation leaving and moving to those who favor the more conservative Anglican church's keeping the original 1928 Book of Common Prayer.
