Supporters are blindsided by plans to sell St David’s Church, built as a living memorial to those who fought in WWI, Stuff reports. Auckland’s St David’s Church is also known as the Soldiers’ Memorial Church, and was built on Khyber Pass Rd in 1927 to honor those who died in the war. Friends of St David’s Trust advocating for the preservation of the church, hall and adjoining car park, were shocked upon learning of the decision to sell the church. They fear the church will end up being redeveloped into offices, apartments or a nightclub.
