EBENEZER CHURCH HERITAGE DAY
This a day when you can learn more about the fascinating story of Australia’s oldest church, Ebenezer Church, about pioneers such as Andrew Johnston, the architect and builder of the church, John Grono who was a ship-builder, sea captain, explorer, sealer and a farmer.
At 10.00am there will be a talk in the church (if covid regulations permit, otherwise in the church grounds under a shady tree).
10.45am is the time for morning tea – that’s Ebenezer’s popular devonshire teas.
From 11.15am to 12 noon there will be a walk-and-talk through the church grounds and colonial graveyard.
Should you wish to stay longer then please bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy overlooking the Hawkesbury River from church grounds. (Please note that lunch is not available from the Ebenezer Church shop.)
At 1.00pm, for the more energetic, there will be a short walk to the quarry from which the stone was cut to build the church, to the riverside beach onto which the pioneers pulled their rowing boats when coming to church…..and if you wish to walk further, there is a walk along the riverbank to a lookout from where you can view two magnificent reaches of the Hawkesbury River.
