The Rev Prince Devanandan speaks to the congregation of the Wesley Methodist Church in Hillside Rd during the church’s final service yesterday.

Ownership of its buildings will be transferred to a new owner this Friday.

The church, its hall and early childhood centre have been closed because they are an earthquake risk.

The Wesley congregation will not continue at another venue; members will attend other Methodist churches.

The Wesley Methodist Church parish was established in the 1880s.
