Somerset, TAS - St Barnabas Anglican (Former)
Last Updated: 12/12/2022
History and Architecture:
According to an item in "Church News of May, 1882, a "pleasant and convenient" site had been secured in 1880 and £12/19/6 ($25.95) had been collected at the time towards the building fund. A public picnic on the Cam Cricket Ground (the site of the then Freezlng works) raised £6/16/6 ($13.65) and, with individual donations, the building fund swiftly reached and passed the £50 ($100.00) mark.
The "Church News" reported that the opening by the Administrator of the Diocese, the Venerable Archdeacon Hales assisted by the Rev. B.K. Bourdillon, was well attended. A large number of people came from Emu Bay and other considerable distances. The collection, in aid of the building fund, was £3/1/9 ($6.19).
This list may not contain every serving cleric, past or present, for this church.
