Church reaches milestone

Recent stories

A decade ago the future of the Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Cudgewa looked bleak.

The floor was riddled with white ants and the inside was in great need of patching and painting.

Much discussion was held on whether it would remain open considering the nature of the repairs needed and dwindling church attendance.

However, a committed group of parishioners felt strongly that it was worth saving and went to work, asking for donations of money and manpower to put towards the repairs which eventuated in 2019.

As a result, Holy Trinity will be celebrating its centenary in July 2024.

The church’s Foundation Stone reads “To the Glory of God this stone was laid by Mrs Wm Blair 16th July 1924.”

A commemorative church service will be held on Sunday July14th followed by a luncheon.

Families and community members who have been associated with the church throughout its history are invited join in the celebrations.
