175th Anniversary of Adelaide Christian New Church

Adelaide Christian New Church

Celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Adelaide Christian New Church’s incorporation (1844). Jacob Pitman arrived in South Australia in 1838 on the Trusty, with his family, bringing books and bibles. In 1844, Pitman arranged the first public service of the New Church at his home in Rundle Street. As minister of the Church, he conducted many marriages, baptisms, funerals and services in the ‘new’ city of Adelaide. Notable members of the New Church included George Woodrofe Goyder, famous for ‘Goyder’s Line of Rainfall’. See a display about the New Church’s history.
