The St Bartholomew's Anglican Church, Alstonville is part of the Parish of Alstonville and the Diocese of Grafton. " In 1896 the first St Bartholomew’s Church was built at Ocean View on land donated by Mr John Perry MLAA... In 1905 the decision was taken to relocate the original St Bartholomew’s Church to 1 The Avenue in Alstonville. The first resident Priest was the Reverend HH Mirrington who was appointed in January 1909 and took up residence in the Rectory which had been built at 3 The Avenue – alongside the church. In that same year (1909) land was purchased across the road from the then St Bartholomew’s church for the purpose of building an enlarged and more permanent church...On 20 August 1913 Bishop Druitt laid the foundation stone, and it took less than two years to complete using stone brought by bullock dray from a quarry on the property of the Anstey family at Tregeagle. The original roof was made of slate. On 7 March 1915 saw the last service conducted at the original church, and four days later on 11 March 1915 the dedication of the new stone church took place. The former church became known as the Church Hall...Sunday 18 August 2013 witnessed a celebration service of thanksgiving, communion and re-enactment of the laying of the foundation stone in 1913.  A large crowd of parishioners and community members attended the service. Two years later on 15 March 2015, a thanksgiving service celebrating the centenary of the dedication of St Bartholomew’s was conducted by The Right Reverend Sarah Macneil, Diocesan Bishop."  (Extract from Church Website -
