Trentham church celebrates 150 years

Past and present parishioners are being invited to celebrate the 150th anniversary of a Trentham church that is a focal point of the small community.

Uniting Church moderator Dan Wootton will attend a service at St Andrews from 2pm this Sunday.

Highlands cluster Reverend Jenny Hayes (pictured) says the congregation, started by Presbyterians in 1865, still meets on the second and fourth Sunday of every month.

‘‘The church remains an important asset for a town like Trentham,’’ she says. ‘‘The hall is used, not just by the church, but by many other community groups as there’s not a lot of public spaces.’’

Afternoon tea will be served after Sunday’s celebratory service. Details: 0428 215 291
