Religion plays a large part in any community. Please add to our collection about religion in this region, including church buildings and religious ceremonies. Do you have any details about early churches or sites where church meetings were held? Do you know that the old slab school was held in the room where much of the community worshipped on Sundays and that J.B. Fry taught from the pulpit? Read a brief overview below.
The Methodist Church (now Uniting)
The Primitive Methodist Church was at Forest Range, on what is now called Fry Lane. Do you have other photos of this church before a new building was erected at the intersection of Swamp and Lobethal Roads at Lenswood?
The Church of Christ
The Church of Christ church was built just below the school. The first building was corrugated iron and it has been rebuilt a few times on the same spot.
The Church of England (now Anglican)
The Church of England held worship at the old slab school and then at Forest School until 1913 when a new Church (The Mission Hall) was built. Please click here to see more information gathered to celebrate the centenary of the Mission Hall.
