A nine acre property had been purchased in McLeans Road, Bundoora however much of it was unsuitable for building.
The Broadway property was now too small for the 150 or more worshippers, so Cinema North in Reservoir was rented for the Sunday services.

Early in 1952, a team of Bible College students conducted a Tent Mission in Reservoir. Soon afterward, in Murray Road, Preston, a hall, where local fishermen held regular gatherings, became the meeting place for a small group of dedicated Pentecostal Christians.
