No. 436 - The Launceston Family Church at Invermay

The Family Church at Foster Street in Invermay belongs to the Apostolic tradition. The Apostolic Church in Australia is now called the “Acts Global Churches” .

The Apostolic Church is a Christian denomination that came from the Pentecostal movement. The term "Apostolic" represents the denomination's belief that it follows the teachings of the twelve apostles who followed Christ. With roots in the 1904–1905 Welsh Revival, it seeks to stand for first-century Christianity in its faith, practices, and government.

The Apostolic Church became established in Tasmania in the 1930’s and 10 churches are established in the State.

The Invermay church was built by the Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1966 and purchased by the Apostolic Church in 1990, who had previously built a church in Abbott Street at Newstead.
