Comments

The Calvary Memorial Uniting Church, Corowa is part of the Riverina Presbytery and the Uniting Church Synod of NSW & ACT. The present church building was opened on 8/7/1967, by the President of the NSW Conference, the Rev G L Walker. It replaced the 1883 church building, which had been erected on the same site. Early Methodist services in Corowa began on 2/7/1876, when the Rev E A Thomas from Barnawartha, held services in the Mechanics Institute1. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 15/5/2018.
