Ouse  Anglican St John Of Baptist

Built in 1842 on land donated by Walter Angus Bethune (1794-1885) who was the son of a presbyterian minister but who converted to the Anglican Church, the building is of stone and rubble and has a small bell turret and was consecrated 9th May, 1867.  Cost of the building was met by local contributions and voluntary labour. 

The stained glass windows in the church are dedicated to early pioneers and another was installed in 1943 to celebrate the centenary of completion date. 

The bell is said to have come from Port Arthur. 

In 1982 extensive renovations were carried out with the north west wall being entirely replaced from locally quarried sandstone.


Headstones in this cemetery were photographed 7th September 2007
