I have been intrigued by the small heritage Church just up from the Ferry at Russell Island. Services are held first and third Sunday at 10.15am. Again I went today to the Church service today…
St Peters Anglican Church Russell Island – 25-27 High Street 07 3409 1157
St Peter’s Parish Hall High St
In 1922 Fred Willes, son of John Willes, donated half an acre of his farmland to the Anglican Church for a proposed hall. Church services had been held in the house of Mr and Miss Hender until then. The hall was built by Joseph Lovell and his son, Bill, of Macleay Island, from Russell Island timber milled at a sawmill on Canaipa Road. The hall was officially opened on 30 March 1924 and was extended in 1959. Electricity was connected in 1966 and town water in 1994.
Communion Service is followed by a shared Morning Tea, so do visit the Island and St Peters Church.
Saturday Mornings, the Church ladies run a second hand shop below the church. Drop in for some bargains, and also send your unwanted household items here for sale. Proceeds go to the Seaman’s Mission.
