No. 744 - Launceston - Punchbowl - Eternal Life Christian Church

Punchbowl is a suburb to the south east of the city of Launceston. The area is best known for the Punch Bowl Reserve, which centres on a natural rock fissure and waterfall. In earlier times it was known as The Devil’s Punchbowl.

The Eternal Life Christian Church on Punchbowl Road is a part of the Assembly of God denomination. It was previously the Punchbowl Bible Chapel, one of four Christian Brethren churches established in Launceston. A timber chapel was built by the Brethren in 1961 but this was outgrown and sold after the Brethren built a new church at Punchbowl in 1991. After the building was acquired by the Assembly of God, a brick facade and tower was added. The original timber church remains and can been seen from the side and rear of the building.

Additional information about this church is welcomed as all articles will be updated. I can be contacted through this page or my Facebook page "Churches of Tasmania" which is linked here: <Churches of Tasmania>
