This building has been ascribed to Carl Otto HAGER and Arthur Henry REID. It is probably a similar situation as the NG Kerk in Jansenville where CO Hager was asked to do the design but the final appearance is probably largely the work of AH Reid. (Fransen 2004:753) Reid was living in Port Elizabeth at the time and one of his main clients was the Dutch Reformed Church in the Cape.

(AB&E Sep 1920:7)
