Event details

In 1839 The Rev Ridgway Newland and a settlement party arrived at Encounter Bay but it wasn't until 1846 when they built their first church. On April 18th the Newland congregation will celebrate the 175th anniversary of that first building with a service at 10.00am at Newland Memorial UC in Victor Harbor.

A brief service of thanksgiving at the Tabernacle Church site (30 Tabernacle Rd Encounter Bay) will be held at 9.00am. The Ex Moderator, the Rev Sue Ellis is a direct descendant of that first group who arrived with Newland and she will preach the sermon, with the President of the UC Assembly and the SA Moderator being present and participating.
