Harry Mason first meets Dahlia Gillespie here following his journey in the Otherworld version of Midwich Elementary School. Harry is drawn to the church by its ringing bells, most likely rang by Dahlia. After leaving Harry with her explanation of what's happening to the town (although further confusing him), Dahlia also entrusts Harry with the Flauros. Harry also finds the drawbridge key inside the church and is then able to enter Central Silent Hill.
