Comments

The present St Peter's Lutheran Church, Stawell building was erected for the Congregational Church in 1874. Two groups of the Congregational Church were in Stawell in the 1860's - the English and the Welsh Independents. They came together a few years after, and on 13 September 1874, this church was opened. The newly formed Lutheran Congregation of Stawell in August 1957 purchased the building. After renovations the building was dedicated on 28/9/1958 as St Peter's Lutheran Church. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 6/12/2016.
