Comments

The first recorded Anglican service in Bonnie Doon was held on 1/1/1889, although as the district had been settled earlier, services were probably held before this. The service was conducted by the Rev J M Watson.

Shortly after this plans were made to construct a place of worhsip. In April 1899 foundation blocks for a church were laid in a ceremony conducted by the Rev J F Frewin.

The church building was dedicated as Christ Church by the Venerable Archdeacon Langley on 18/10/1899. The church was opened debt free.

The church is one of three historic places of worship which are located side-by-side - Anglican/Uniting(Presbyterian)/Catholic and all date back to the pioneer days of the district.

More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 18/11/2017.
