Our place in the Diocese

The Anglican Parish of Warracknabeal is one of 28 parishes in the Diocese of Ballarat. 

"Early in October 1854, Henry Bowyer Lane, government architect at the Ballarat Camp, called tenders for the "Erection of a Churchin the Township of Ballarat", according to plans to be seen at his office. Building began in 1854 after £250 had been subscribed, and a ceremony was held to lay the foundation stone." [John Spooner. 'The Golden See']
