Located at 40-46 Frederick Street, The Chinese Anglican Mission Church Hall is one of the few remaining (as of June 2017) original 'Chinatown' buildings remaining, albeit this one is in a state of disrepair[1].

Built in 1905 (Architect: Frederick de Jersey Clere), the Wellington Chinese Anglican Mission occupied this building for over fifty years, before moving in 1956.[1][2]

Much of the original façade remains, and although this building is not in a heritage area, it is considered to be a building of cultural significance to the Chinese Community.[1][3]
