Windsor Uniting Church

I am continuing on with some history of Windsor N.S.W this week.
"Windsor Uniting Church - a congregation which was first established in 1812 as the Wesleyan Church in the newly established communities of the Hawkesbury... The first chapel was opened in 1820, the second larger chapel in 1838, with the third church on the site being opened and dedicated in 1876, following the devastating Windsor township fire just before Christmas 1874, which destroyed both the church and the minister's residence next door." (Extract Church Website:
(Sydney Morning Herald - 2 September 1876) "On Wednesday last the new church was opened. It is an elegant and beautiful structure both externally and internally, an adornment to the town, and a monument to the zeal of the Wesleyan body. Unlike the former church it fronts Fitzgerald Street instead of Macquarie Street which, is generally thought to be an improved situation."
Ah “the improved situation”, I love that phrase. And to think, you can improve a situation by moving the front door. 🤓 Love your photo in a photo, it’s a beautiful church.

Oh yes, I'm definitely in favour of an 'improved situation', in more ways than one!!!
