On Sunday November 5, 120 people celebrated the 110th anniversary of the laying of the foundation stone of the Kingscote Uniting Church.

The Church was packed with people of all ages who enjoyed the colour, music, reminiscences and humour of the service.

Young hosts Oscar and Sam interviewed Church members about their past and present experiences.

The kid’s choir had fun assembling the ‘body’, and Pastor Louise Davis provided a stimulating and challenging message on the future Church.

After the service, the glorious spring day encouraged people to sit outside.

The intoxicating smells from the BBQ whetted appetites for the delicious lunch to follow.

Dianne Hoffman’s cake rendered the Church’s history in a masterpiece of chocolate and cream!

It was ceremonially cut by the youngest and oldest members present.

Louise then thanked all those who, under the leadership of Joan Cooper, had contributed to the success of the day.

Here’s to the next 110 years of Church community and worship.
