Our latest exhibition looks at the 200-year history of this iconic church. On display are never-before-seen objects including a beautiful 1839 wedding dress and items from the church vault including the original communion cup.

We have formed a Community Bicentennial Team and are inviting help from the wider community to celebrate our bicentennial.
