Local church to mark centenary
The congregation of Mathoura’s St Andrew’s Uniting Church is preparing for a very special occasion.
Sunday, October 28 will mark a centenary of service at the local church.
Celebrations to mark the occasion will begin at 2pm on that day and will be followed by afternoon tea.
With a good deal of church history lost in the fire which destroyed the church hall a few years ago, organisers are keen to hear from anyone who may have photographs or other memorabilia relating to the past 100 years as well as any stories or anecdotes.
If you can help, contact Bronwyn Eddy on 5884 3366 or email@example.com.
Locals wanting to join in the celebrations should contact the Eddys. You will be most welcome.
