Apostolic Church, Stromness

I believe this photo was taken in the 1930s. Does anyone know anything about this church, or when it was demolished?

I might be wrong but I think that building was still there in 1963 when the Sea Cadets used it (there was a building there then for sure, mibbe not that one)I think it was called the rifle range.

Could this be 'Brooklyn' on the Back Road?

I believe the church was occupied by elements of HQ Orkney and Shetland Defences (HQ OSDEF) from 1940 to 1945. It was on Back Road and later demolished.
