The Christ Church Anglican Church, Mount Gambier is part of the Lower Limestone Coast Pastoral District in the Diocese of The Murray. Irregular Anglican services began in the district about 1858, in private homes and halls, until the church building was opened in 1865. The church celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015. Over the years additional buildings have been erected, and alterations/improvements made to the church building to meet the needs of the congregation. No other details are known. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 31/1/2015
