Comments

The current All Saints Anglican Church, Poowong building replaced an earlier wooden structure on the same site. "Holy worship was always important in Poowong. This is evident by the recordings of services held in selectors' homes until 1878 when the Wesleyan Church (now Pioneer Chapel) was built in Poowong. The first Church of England service was held here on 15th Dec. 1878..". The first service in the original All Saints Anglican Church, Poowong building was held on 11/7/1884. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 8/3/2020.
