No. 1026 - Waverley - St Matthias' Anglican Church (1961-1966)

Waverley is an eastern Launceston suburb made famous by the woollen mills, which carried its name. It was established as a housing subdivision in the 1950s.

St. Mathias’ Anglican church was a short-lived church that was established in 1960. It opened in 1961 on a site on the Scottsdale Road (Tasman Highway) The building was gutted by a fire in 1966. As the church was not insured it was never rebuilt.

To date I have yet to find a photograph of St Matthias’. 

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