AWARD WINNING CHURCH COMPLEX

CELEBRATED 50 YEARS

September 9th  OPEN DAY

Architect Robin Gibson won awards for his design of

Kenmore Uniting Church and Community Centre.

The Open Day celebrated 50 years of opening doors to the community for all kinds of spiritual, cultural, fellowship, service and well-being activities in the Church and Community Centre. The buildings have moved with the times with upgrades and renovations, the latest improvement being air conditioning to the top floor.

BLESSING OF THE BOWL 

Baptismal Bowl from the Pioneer Church preserved by a member of the congregation after the plinth was broken, has been repurposed and blessed as a garden feature for the 50th Anniversary of the complex.

Vi and Evelyn planting a tree for the future.

Vi Hall is the great-grand-daughter of Joseph Clarkson and Robert Henry, two of the first elders of the Kenmore Presbyterian Church (now the Kenmore Uniting Church) who came to Australia in the 1860s. Her great-uncle Daniel Clarkson planted the pine tree which later became the marker for and origin of the name of the Lone Pine Sanctuary at Fig Tree Pocket. As Vi is one of the longest continuous residents of Kenmore, she was the ideal person to plant a new tree.

Thanks to Dr Christian Rowan who donated a plaque for the occasion. Seen here with Rev. Heather den Houting, General Secretary of the Uniting Church in Qld and a previous minister of Kenmore UC and Dawn Langford, local Secretary.

 

Kenmore State High’s Girls’ Choir added to the celebrations, as did the Boys’ choir and many other activities.
