Originally mounted in the church tower during the alterations to the building in the year 1892, and removed in 1976 when the old tower was razed.

The bell is mounted here as a symbol of the influence on the community of this church for the last one hundred and fifty-five years, and as a challenge for those who follow to work diligently for the advancement of the kingdom of God throughout the world.

May it still be used to mark significant events so that all who hear the clear tones ring out will be reminded anew of their divine mandate to witness at home and abroad.
The marble plaque on the opposite side of this mound was also removed from the front facade of the building during the 1976 alterations.
