No. 902. Rocky Cape Family Church

Rocky Cape is a rural settlement on the Bass Highway located about 30 kilometres north-west of Wynyard. The name Rocky Cape is taken from a prominent coastal feature described by Matthew Flinders in 1798.

The Rocky Cape Family Church is based in the Rocky Cape Public Hall. The Hall, which opened in 1907, has served as a place of worship for other denominations, including Catholic and Presbyterian, before churches were built by these communities.

The Rocky Cape Family Church is associated with the Apostolic tradition which has had a presence in Tasmania since the 1930s. The Apostolic Church in Australia is now known as the “Acts Global Churches” .

The Apostolic Church is a denomination linked to the Pentecostal movement. The term "Apostolic" represents the denomination's belief that it follows the teachings of the twelve apostles who followed Christ. With roots in the 1904–1905 Welsh Revival, it seeks to revive first-century Christianity in its faith, practices, and government.

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.
