Narrogin, Western Australia
The Narrogin Adventist congregation held a special day to mark the church’s centenary.
It was a really lovely day and it was because so many people from the community made it so.
The Furnival Street building was constructed from rocks carted from a Cuballing Road property 100 years ago. In the lead-up to the church’s birthday on March 18, a new room was installed with the help of a number of local businesspeople, who donated time and funds to the project.
As part of the celebration, a 1936 vintage Ford was driven to the church by Narrogin man Ted Borgas, the same type of vehicle in which his family drove to the church from Highbury some 70 years ago.
The back room was used as a school from 1915 to 1925, and student records were on display for the day, along with other memorabilia.
Church clerk Jan Laver said the day was one to remember, with about 70 people attending.
“It was a really lovely day and it was because so many people from the community made it so,” she said.
