62nd Anniversary of St John`s Anglican ChurchPrint Page Print this page

A tree planted by Lord Gowrie commemorates the 62nd anniversary of St John`s Anglican Church.

St John's Anglican Parish was established in 1882. The original building, which was licensed for use on 16th June 1882, extended to the present chancel steps and cost ₤1,200.  The idea of adding classrooms to the building for a school was abandoned when state aid was withdrawn from denominational schools from the end of 1882.
