Comments

The present St Columba of Iona Anglican Church building replaced an earlier timber structure erected in 1864 as a school and church. It was consecrated on 23/9/1900. The site is not in the the village but situated on Busby's original land. Mrs Busby laid the foundation stone. A cemetery adjoins the church. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 18/3/2020.
