The plaque commemorates the centenary of the Davey Street Congregational Church and the people who have served there.

Further celebrations in connection with the centenary of the Davey Street Congregational Church were conducted yesterday. This afternoon more than 250 persons were present at a gathering in the church, at which a tribute was paid to the eleven ministers who have offliciated at the church since its inception. In the evening a tablet was unveiled by Rev. A. Penry Evans, of Melbourne, and it was dedicated to the past congregation of the church. This was followed by a public meeting, at which the president of the Council of Churches (Mr. E. E. Unwin) presided.
