150th Anniversary of First Service at Holy TrinityPrint Page Print this page

The plaque, erected in 1985, commemorates the 150th Anniversary of the first service which was held in 1835.

Dating from 1835, Holy Trinity Church Kelso was the first church consecrated west of the Blue Mountains. With its pioneer cemetery and rectory designed by Edmund Blacket, it is one of the most significant building groups in the Central West region. Holy Trinity played a vital part in the regional growth of the Anglican Church, enjoying the early support of well known religious figures at the time such as Reverend Samuel Marsden and Bishop William Broughton.
