The Borania Drive-in is named after a type of tree.

The entrance(and exit?) road for the church may be the former entrance(and/ or exit?) road of the drive-in?

The church has moved to a new location(sometime in 2017?) near the drive-on site!! The entrance(and exit road?) is now blocked off. The church is called Troode Street Church. The church when on the druve-in may have used the snack bar(and bio box) building(later the Safari Nightclub) for there church?
