St Alban’s Anglican Church, Tocumwal

06/02/2016

(Formerly Church of England)

The first recorded Church of England service was conducted by Dr Linton, Bishop of Riverina, in 1886. From 1891 the Rev Holt of Deniliquin conducted services in Hillson’s Hall on a semi-regular basis.

 In 1893 a two day Flower Show was held to raise money for an organ.

On 18 November 1897 the first resident Church of England rector, Rev Bradshaw, took over the Parish and immediately commenced an appeal for funds to build a Church. Mr GF Sugden donated the land for the Church and Rectory in December 1897, and in July 1899 tenders were called for the erection.

The foundation stone was laid by Mrs HE Casey on 19 October 1899 and the first services were held in the Church early the following year, the Rev Ward being the rector at the time.
