No. 801 - Deloraine - Western Tiers Mennonite Church

Deloraine is a historic tourist town situated on the Meander River and lies approximately halfway between the cities of Launceston and Devonport. The settlement dates to the 1830s and was named by the surveyor, Thomas Scott, after Sir William Deloraine, a character in Sir Walter Scott's poem "The Lay of the Last Minstrel". Sir Walter Scott was a relative of Thomas Scott. 

The Western Tiers Mennonite Church is located in Deloraine’s former Uniting Church in West Barrack Street. 

The church was founded in 2013 and is is member of the Nationwide Fellowship Churches, a breakaway Anabaptist Mennonite group which has over 100 congregations globally.

No further information is available about the church at this stage.  Additional information about this church is most welcome as all articles are continually updated. I can be contacted through this page or my Facebook page "Churches of Tasmania" which is linked here: Churches of Tasmania.
