Comments

The first Wentworthville Presbyterian Church was a small weatherboard building located at 59 Railway Street. It was opened by the Moderator, The Right Rev Thomas Morgan on 9/11/1912. The present church site, in McKern Street, was purchased in 1926, and the old St Andrew's Presbyterian Church (built 1840-49) in Church Street, Parramatta purchased, to be moved and re-erected on the site. The re-erected building was opened and dedicated by the Interim Moderator , the Rev J Patterson, on 24/11/1928. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 8/3/2021.
