Grant to help protect 160-year-old church

Tuesday, 1 October 2019

Work has started on the 160-year-old Reformed Presbyterian Church on Fenwick Street, to replace the historic slate roof.

The project received funding from our Central Geelong Heritage Fund, which is a grants program provided by the Community Investment and Support Fund (CISF).

The church was built in 1862 and the historic slate roof has been deteriorating for a number of years.

Councillor Jim Mason, Chair of the Arts, Culture and Heritage portfolio has met with Reverend Andrew Stewart and contractor John Murnane, who say the new roof will preserve the 160 year old building and keep its heritage intact.

More information on grants and funding offered by the City of Greater Geelong can be found on our grants page.
