That would be 1913.
I have a picture of it with the front part of the upper floor blown-out. I'll see if I can find it in the morning. The ruined building also took another hit four years after the first in 1944: A direct hit from a shell.

You're right, the small plaque says, ( from what I can make out.)

... 18 or 1913, destroyed by enemy action, 1940, rebuilt to the glory of God 1953.

I had to use a magnifying glass to enlarge the photo on my camera screen.

It's a lot older than that. It looks new because it was bombed during the war and repaired...Maybe in 1953?
And as far as I know it is being turned into flats.

The former Salvation Army Church ( citadel, I think they call it) in Dover has been closed for sometime and is being converted into flats.

I thinks it was built in 1953.
