Jubilee History of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church of Carlton

THE Congregation of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Carlton, has had an interesting and varied history, and it is hoped that the following pages will meet with approval as an attempt to give an impartial and accurate account of the work carried on since the Congregation first met in the old Protestant Hall. I regret that I have not been able to obtain a picture of that interesting old building, the foundation-stone of which was laid on 5th April. 1847. My sources of information have been official records, newspaper reports, and the testimony of eye-witnesses. I have to thank the many kind friends who have given me information or provided photographs, and my especial thanks are due to J. D. Law, Esq., General Manager of the Bank of Victoria, for his kindness in helping me to work out the true story of the old building debt, and to Professor MacDonald, D.D., for interesting personal reminiscences of the early ministers of the Congregation, and the selection of the quotation on the title page. I acknowledge, also, my gratitude to my colleague on the Board of Management, Mr. E. P. Moncrieff, for his valuable assistance in photographing the group of the Session, Trustees, and Managers, and the various buildings belonging to the Congregation.


4TH MAY, 1905.
