Church's 150 years
A PLAQUE marking 150 years of the Powlett Plains Uniting Church was unveiled on Sunday.
Church secretary Kaye Penny said a Mr Parry built the Powlett Plains Presbyterian Church in 1871.
“The original site was on Myrnong, the property on the Loddon River first settled and owned by Mr John Coutts,” she said.
“The church was built for John Coutts, his family and workers, and served by itinerant preachers. At the turn of the century the church was dismantled and moved on wagons to its present site.
“In 1976 it became the Powlett Plains Uniting Church. It has been in continuous use as a centre of Christian worship and service to the local community ever since,” Kaye said.
