No. 843 - Burnie City Church

Burnie is a port city on the north west coast of Tasmania. When it was settled in 1827 by the Van Diemen’s Land Company it was known as Emu Bay. In the 1840s the settlement was renamed Burnie after William Burnie, a director of the Van Diemen's Land Company.

Over thirty places of worship have been established at Burnie since settlement began. The Burnie City Church, previously known as the Burnie Christian Centre, is located in a converted commercial building on Wilmot street near Burnie’s foreshore.

The church is associated with CRC Churches International, formerly known as the Christian Revival Crusade, which is a Pentecostal Protestant Christian denomination founded in New Zealand and Australia by Thomas Foster (Melbourne) and Leo Harris (Adelaide). There are 8 CRC churches across Tasmania.

Additional information about this church and the building 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.
