Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Roebourne (1895-1899)

Raising the roof...workmen prepare the framework for the new roof. The crumbling exterior mortar before the restoration. Chipping away the old render inside Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Roebourne Found … the brass corner stone plaque of the original church that was built in the early 1880s on the site where Holy Trinity Church is now. Taking shape … inspecting the new roof beams. Getting there … builder Dave Baessler, centre, at work on the interior restoration. Nearly there...the church interior prior to final render. Builder Dave Baessler checks the new exterior mortar work. The church's iron-framed windows showing the steel bars set into the concrete. Repointing and reconstructed window sills after the scaffolding was removed from the north side of the church. The apse and windows of Holy Trinity Church. Preparing … the scaffolding goes into place to remove and replace the iron roof of Holy Trinity Church. Holy night … the night-time thanksgiving service held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in 2016, before the restoration, to mark Roebourne’s 150th anniversary.

The historic church is the oldest church in the North West and sits upon a ridge on Mt Welcome with spectacular views of the coast and Roebourne Plains sweeping back to the Chichester Range.

The landmark building was built of local stone in 1895 to replace an earlier church destroyed by a cyclone.
