The kindergarten hall was built to commemorate those who served in World War Two. It was opened by Archbishop Booth on July 3, 1955, the centenary year of the foundation of the Church of England in Bacchus Marsh.

Holy Trinity celebrated the centenary of the church's establishment by a ball on Friday night and special services on Sunday. Archbishop Booth conducted a morning service, dedicated a prayer desk chair to the memory of a former vicar, the Rev. T. Davis, and opened a new war memorial kindergarten completed last week.
