Church of the Nazarene (Pentecostal), Albion Street (Morley)
Colour image27th June 1984. Image shows part of the frontage of the Church of the Nazarene, the Pentecostal church, in Albion street taken around the time it was to be demolished. The elaborate stone carving over the doorway can be seen. On the evening of Monday 2nd January 1984 the church was hit by gales of 80 m.p.h. and suffered severe and irrepairable damage. The roof, a structure of 80 feet, was ripped off the building and dumped onto the adjoining Sunday School. Debris was scattered all over the surrounding area, which is the site of Morrison's car park, and a woman narrowly escaped serious injury from flying slates etc. She was treated for minor injuries. The damage to the church was estimated at £500,000 and so the church authorities were forced to come to the decision that demolition was inevitable and a new Church of the Nazarene would need to be constructed. The existing site was retained for the new Church of the Nazarene. Buildings in the section of Albion Street between Corporation Street and Queen Street were cleared by 1972 to make way for the building of the new Morrison's supermarket and the Windsor Court shopping precinct in 1973. Only the Church of the Nazarene remained standing and so, as this part of Albion Street no longer existed, the church became surrounded by car parking. A new link road was constructed, during the same period as the precinct was built, which became known as Queensway.
