Comments

This former Alford Uniting Church building is now privately owned. A church building, originally for the Primitive Methodist's, has existed on this site since 1883. In 1953 the congregation from Tickera Methodist Church amalgamated with Alford. (See separate entry).

The third photograph is of the old church building at Alford.. It was demolished and the present one built on the site in the 1960s. The church worship services were held in the (pictured at rear) Sunday School hall while the new building was erected. The congregation had outgrown the old chuch building. No other details are known about the former church.  More historical information/photographs of the former church/congregation are invited. Photographs upladed 7/5/2017.
