Ebenezer Church wins a Top Sustainable Cities Award!
Ebenezer Church in the Hawkesbury region was a winner at the Sustainable Cities Awards Dinner hosted by Keep Australia Beautiful NSW and City of Canada Bay Council.
The incredible and lengthy work undertaken by the Ebenezer Church Council to restore Ebenezer Church in Ebenezer was the winning entry of the NSW Heritage Branch Heritage Award.
Peter McLean, CEO of Keep Australia Beautiful, said the project was particularly impressive for the way in which it pulled the small congregation together for a common goal.
“Ebenezer Church was incapable of meeting the costs of the restoration work but with some lateral thinking, the council was able to contact descendents of the 15 pioneer families who built the church in 1809, and obtained 60 percent of the needed funds.”
The church is the oldest existing church in Australia and the five year Restoration of Australia’s Oldest Existing Church project included roof repairs, water tank replacement, new toilets, painting, and weed clearing from river banks with some funding through the NSW Government's Heritage Grants Program administered by the Department's Heritage Branch.
