No. 765 - Rokeby - River City Church

Rokeby is an eastern suburb of Hobart, which was a small village until the Housing Department built a large housing estate in the 1970's. It is named after "Rokeby House" which was built by George Stokell in 1830, in honour of a village in Yorkshire, England.

The Rokeby Presbyterian Community Church, situated on Tollard Drive, was established in the mid 1980s. The building is now occupied by “The River City Open House Community Outreach Centre”. This is a part of Hobart’s River City Church which is a member of the Acts Global Churches. This is a “second generation name” for the Apostolic Church Australia.

A Presbyterian community, “The Charis Presbyterian Church”, continues to function at Rokeby and meets in the Rokeby Trust Hall.

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>
