Built in 1928, the church is one of the oldest heritage buildings in the area.
It is listed as a Category B Building by Auckland Council, which means it is a place of significant heritage value.
After inspections, Auckland Council issued a dangerous building notice in late March.
An independent engineering consultancy also confirmed that the church was “immediately dangerous” and at risk of collapse.
The council said all avenues were considered to save the church but demolition was the only safe option.
