The foundation stone of the new chancel was laid in 1920 to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of the Holy Trinity Parish. 

Bishop Le Fanu will lay the foundation stone of a new chancel at Holy Trinity Church, Fortitude Valley, tomorrow (Trinity Sunday), as a memorial of the diamond jubilee of the church. There will be special music by an augmented choir which will appear for first time fully robed. The Albion Salvation Array Band will assist. A parchment copy of the honour roll containing the names of all Church of England men from the parish who served in the war, the diamond jubilee booklet, and other documents will be placed in a cavity of the stone. There will be a celebration of holy communion at 7.30 a.m., at which some beautiful birthday gifts to the church will be dedicated. Particulars of other services during the week are advertised.
