No. 683 - Mount Hicks Gospel Hall

Upper Mount Hicks is a rural settlement situated approximately 13 kilometres south of Wynyard. Two churches were built at Mount Hicks; a Methodist church that opened in the 1890’s and a Gospel Chapel which was established in the 1950s. Both churches have closed.

Early Christian Brethren meetings at Mount Hicks were held in local homes with support from the Brethren Gospel Hall at Wynyard. Worship also took place in the Yolla Memorial Hall. While meetings ceased for a time, a Brethren community was reestablished with the opening of the Upper Mount Hicks Chapel on 11 November 1956. The chapel closed early this century and was sold and converted into a house.

Additional information and sources about the church and building are most welcome as all articles are updated. I can be contacted through this page or my Facebook page "Churches of Tasmania" which is linked here: <Churches of Tasmania>
