PAST EVENT

Hearing the Stories and Sounds of our Spiritual Ancestors

Wesley Church has in the past been a strong voice to the community. Come and hear about some of the pillars of the faith whilst enjoying the sound of the pipe organ that gives a voice to the hymns of the past. A black and white film without sound featuring 1950s Rural Tasmanians will also be shown.

Wesley Church in the 1800s was made up of the tradespeople of Tasmania. Families such as the Brownell, Haywood, Mather, Millington, Courtney-Pratt, Blundstone and Millington were members that contributed to life of the church. Wesley was able to be a voice not only to the community in which it served but also as far spread as Tonga, New Zealand and Fiji. Because of this, Wesley Heritage today holds in its collection artefacts from Colonial Tasmania and the South Pacific that are on display and are able to be viewed.

Wesley also has black and white film footage, without sound, that showcases in particular faces of both city and rural Tasmanians that allows interpretation of what life was like in the 1950s.

A morning tea will also be served after the one hour presentation.
