Christ Church Myrniong 150yrs Celebration

posted 9 Dec 2014, 23:25 by Roger MacRaild

On Sunday the 23rd November 2014, a 10am combined service was led by Bishop Philip Huggin, Vicar Darrell Couch and Curate Helen Dwyer to celebrate the significant milestone.  The chapel was filled, as was a large marquee on the front lawn, with a combined Bacchus Marsh Parish congregation, dignitaries including Don Nardella MLA & Mayor Paul Tatchell, previous clergy of the parish, clergy of other churches of the district, members of the local community and many people with a connection to the Parish from far and wide. 

The weather was warm as was the atmosphere amongst those present.  Following the service refreshment were served in the Myrniong Hall with many photos and other memorabilia on display, a credit to those involved.

Half the money raised on the night will go to the RSPCA (the charity of the winning table's choice) the other half to the good work of Bacchus Marsh Anglican.
