From The South Australian Methodist – Friday 4 October 1957…

60 years ago, Naracoorte Uniting Church (then Methodist) were getting ready to move into their brand new building.
The photos are from documents in the History Centre’s collection – the ‘new’ church shown in the early 1960s from a Stewardship information brochure; and the old Methodist Church from the order of service for the Opening and Dedication Ceremonies for the new church.

The opening service was held on Sunday October 22, 1957 and was led by the then President-General of the Methodist Church of Australasia – Dr the Rev. A. Harold Wood, M.A. – and the Minister of the Circuit – The Rev. E. N. Broomhead, M.A.
