Ebenezer Church Heritage Day
This is a day when you can learn more about the fascinating story of Australia’s oldest church - Ebenezer Church. You will hear about the people who built the church, pioneers such as … Andrew Johnston, the architect of the church and John Grono who was a ship-builder and sea captain.
At 10.00am there will be a talk in the church (if covid regulations permit, otherwise in the church grounds).
10.45am is the time for morning tea – that’s Ebenezer’s popular devonshire teas.
From 11.15am to 12 noon there will be walks-and-talks in small groups through the church grounds and the colonial graveyard.
At 12.00pm, 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 go further, there is a walk along the riverbank to a lookout from which you can view two magnificent reaches of the Hawkesbury River.
Should you wish to stay longer then please bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy in church grounds.
