Title of Haberfield Association Walking Tour: Church Design in Haberfield from the 1860’s to the 1960’s.

Description: Churches are places where people share their experiences in their relationship with God. Despite this common theme, the buildings in which shared religious activities occur have varied in architectural style. Four of Haberfield’s churches show three different styles of architecture: Victorian Gothic, Inter-War Gothic and Post-World War II Modern. The interiors of St David’s Uniting Church 1869, St Oswald’s Anglican Church 1928, St Joan of Arc Catholic Church 1955 and the Baptist Church 1962 will be open to visit. A brief organ recital will be given at St David’s.  

This walking tour will commence at 1.30pm and include a visit to other former religious sites in Haberfield. Tour notes and afternoon tea will be provided. The tour should conclude by about 3.30pm leaving people time to wander through the burial ground behind St David’s.

When: Sunday 23 April 2023.  Meeting Place will be given on booking.

Cost: $20 per person, $15 for Haberfield Association members.
