Scots-Memorial Congregation extends a heartfelt invitation to join us in celebrating a momentous occasion: the 200th anniversary of the first service at 29 Bathurst Street, held in Scots Kirk (now called St Andrew’s Hall) on 12 September 1824.

This remarkable milestone not only marks two centuries of spiritual presence but also commemorates the enduring legacy of resilience and faith that has shaped our community.

Nestled in the heart of Hobart, our Church stands as a testament to the unwavering determination of those early Presbyterians who came before us. Scots Kirk, built by the hands of convicts two centuries ago, and later St Andrew’s Church (now Scots Church), their walls echo with stories of hardship, perseverance and ultimately, triumph. Over the years, Scots Kirk, St Andrew’s and now Scots Church, have served as beacons of hope, offering solace, guidance and a sense of belonging to generations of worshippers.

  • Celebration Service: Join us for a commemorative service led by the Reverend Dennis Cousens, reflecting on the journey of our congregation and the community it has nurtured.
  • Community Gathering: Connect with fellow attendees over morning tea and fellowship, sharing memories, and forging new friendships.
  • Historical Exhibits: Explore displays showcasing the rich history that is 29 Bathurst Street, Hobart.

As we come together to honour the past, let us also look forward with hope and optimism for the future of our Church and the community it serves. Your presence at this special event would mean the world to us as we pay tribute to 200 years of faith, fellowship, and shared history.

We look forward to celebrating with you!
