No. 221 - The former Evangelical Presbyterian Church at Youngtown

The Evangelical Presbyterian Church was established in 1961. It is a small denomination with representation in Tasmania, Queensland and New South Wales.

The church was founded in Tasmania and the ordination of its first ministers took place in Launceston:

“The historical scene was then set for the actual birth of the EPC. It took place on Thursday evening, the 28th. September, 1961, in "Chalmers Hall", Frederick Street, Launceston. This in many ways was most appropriate, for Chalmers Church was the original Free Church in Launceston”.

The Evangelical Presbyterian Church has had several congregations in Tasmania including Hobart, Taranna, Penguin and Winnaleah. The Launceston congregation has relocated to Newstead and the former church building has recently been used as a dance school.
